According to Microsoft’s Windows 10 feature update release schedule, the next version of the operating system should be finalized as soon as this month, while the public debut should kick off in October.
And by the looks of things, the development of this feature update is indeed on track and is expected to be completed in September, just as planned.
Codenamed Windows 10 19H2, the next major update for Windows 10 has recently been entirely promoted to the Release Preview ring, being offered as a manual download for seekers. This means that whoever is part of the Release Preview ring and goes to Windows Update to check for updates should now be offered the 19H2 update.

At the same time, Microsoft says it’s also kicking off the automatic release of the 19H2 update to a limited number of users in the RP ring, with the rollout to advance in the coming weeks.
“We have increased the “seeker” experience for 19H2 in the Release Preview ring to 100%. This means that everyone in the Release Preview ring should see a Windows 10, version 1909 update available If they go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. Insiders who choose to install this update will be updated to 19H2 Build 18363.329. We are also beginning to push 19H2 out to 10% of Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring as well. This means 10% of Insiders in the Release Preview should see 19H2 Build 18363.329 offered automatically,” Microsoft explains.
The Release Preview ring is the last testing channel for new Windows 10 feature updates before they are released to production devices.
Microsoft hasn’t yet announced the launch date of the 19H2 feature update, but further information should be provided when this gradual rollout for the Release Preview ring is complete.
