Microsoft have announced their plans for the 19H2 Windows Update due later this year. As we suspected the update isn’t going to be a major once with the focus on “performance improvements, enterprise features, and quality enhancement”.
The update isn’t going to be delivered as a full build it instead will be a cumulative update with the minor number of the build being incremented. Windows Insiders on the slow ring are going to get the update:
Insiders will need to be in the Slow ring and on the May 2019 Update to receive 19H2 bits.
19H2 will be delivered to Insiders in the Slow ring via servicing as a Cumulative Update and not full build updates.
Some Insiders may not see the new features right away as we perform controlled feature rollouts (CFRs) to gain better feedback on overall build quality.
Specific to CFRs, we may ship features in these updates turned off by default and turn them on independently of bits getting downloaded to Insiders’ PCs.
The first build going out to Windows Insiders is 18362.1000 and is being used to test the update process and doesn’t contain any new features:
We are also releasing 19H2 Build 18362.10000 to Insiders in the Slow ring today. This update contains two behind-the-scenes changes designed for OEMs and does not contain anything visible to Insiders. We’re using this update to test our process and servicing pipeline for delivering these updates to customers. 19H2 updates to Insiders will also be cumulative with the latest May 2019 Updates.
Microsoft haven’t specified what new features will be coming to 19H2.
