His support Windows 10 version 1809 expires on November 10, 2020 and the devices that are still running with this version of Windows 10 after the upcoming November 2020 Patch Tuesday they will no longer be able to have security updates.
So Microsoft started launching new feature updates on the devices it runs with Windows 10 version 1809 in June 2020. The company plans to start making the updates mandatory in the coming weeks and months, provided that no updates to these devices have been blocked by the owners.
In June we will start slowly with the function updates on the devices running with Windows 10, in version 1809 (October 2018 Update) in the Home and Pro versions, before the late expiration date of November 10, 2020 to provide sufficient time for close monitoring and a smooth update process.
The selected feature update to be installed is the 2004 version of Windows 10, the latest update of features Windows 10 until this moment. Microsoft's move may make sense because it ensures the smooth updating of Windows as a Service, but some users who prefer stability may react to the news.
If you are worried about updating to version 2004, do not let your system automatically upgrade, and do not press the check button for new updates.
Upgrading to Windows 10 version 1909 will provide you with support until May 2021 and may be the best choice if stability is paramount to you.
The manual upgrade option is the only option for devices that cannot be upgraded using Windows Update. If the feature update is not available through Windows Update, you will need to update manually by downloading the ISO image that interests you.
