Windows 10 Patch Tuesday April 2021
Microsoft has released new cumulative updates to Windows 10 as part of its Patch Tuesday, April 2021 release.
Needless to say, since these updates appear in Patch Tuesday, their focus is primarily on security patches, as Microsoft uses them to fix security vulnerabilities in the operating system and other software.
All versions of Windows 10 receive cumulative updates if they are still supported by the company.
The full list of cumulative updates released this month is as follows:
- Windows 10 version 1507 - KB5001340 (OS Build 10240.18906)
- Windows 10 version 1607 - KB5001347 (OS Build 14393.4350)
- Windows 10 version 1703 - EOS
- Windows 10 version 1709 - EOS
- Windows 10 version 1803 - KB5001339 (OS Build 17134.2145)
- Windows 10 version 1809 - KB5001342 (OS Build 17763.1879)
- Windows 10 version 1909 - KB5001337 (OS Build 18363.1500) (1903 is EOS)
- Windows 10 version 2004 and 20H2 - KB5001330 (OS Builds 19041.928 and 19042.928)
In addition to the new cumulative updates already available, you should be aware of a warning issued by Microsoft about the end of support for Windows 10 version 1909.
This particular version will reach the end of support next month, so those who run it have less than a month to upgrade, unless they are running a SKU Enterprise, Education and IoT Enterprise.
"Windows 10, version 1909, will reach support end on May 11, 2021 for devices with Home, Pro, Pro for Workstation and Server SAC versions. After May 11, 2021, these devices will no longer receive monthly security and quality updates containing protection against the latest security threats. "To continue receiving security and quality updates, Microsoft recommends updating to the latest version of Windows 10," says Microsoft.
Cumulative Windows 10 updates are available through Windows Update.
