Microsoft revealed yesterday evening that it has started the rollout of the new feature update for its Windows 10 operating system called the May 2019 Update or Windows 10 version 1903.

Microsoft delayed the release of the new feature update for the operating system to take it through another round of testing. The decision to do more tests was made because the previously released feature update, Windows 10 version 1809, had clear quality issues that caused lots of issues for users ranging from data loss to problems with mapped network drives.

 

The feature update is available for users who search for it actively at the time of writing, and there not even for all administrators who do so. The update is also available via the Media Creation Tool either as an in-place upgrade or creation of installation media.

Microsoft changed the process significantly. Previously, if you ran a manual check for updates, the update would be download and installed right away. Starting with this feature update, the update is presented to you first so that you get to choose whether to download and install it at that point in time.

In other words: the feature update installation has been unlinked from the regular updating process on Windows 10 devices.

The new option is available on Windows 10 version 1803 or 1809 devices that have the May 21st updates (or later) installed.
