The Windows 10 November 2019 Update (version 1909, codenamed 19H2) shipped back in November last year, and now the remaining blocks have been removed and the update is available to all systems. With the initial release Microsoft blocked the rollout to systems with compatibly issues and now the blocks have been removed.

The update is available to anyone that clicks on “Check for Updates” in Windows Update. The update will also start to be pushed out to Windows 10 devices running version 1809 or older. The November update was a minor feature update to Windows 10 with Microsoft focusing on stability and performance.

Here are the details from Microsoft:

Current status as of January 21, 2019:

Windows 10, version 1909 is available for any user on a recent version of Windows 10 who manually selects “Check for updates” via Windows Update. The recommended servicing status is Semi-Annual Channel.

We are starting the next phase in our controlled approach to automatically initiate a feature update for an increased number of devices running the October 2018 Update (Windows 10, version 1809) Home and Pro editions, keeping those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health. Our rollout process starts several months in advance of the end of service date to provide adequate time for a smooth update process.

For information on how users running Windows 10, version 1903 can update to Windows 10, version 1909 in a new, streamlined way, see this post.
