Windows 10 version 2003 would be the ninth major refresh since the original release that Microsoft is likely to release between spring 2020 with additional features and enhancements.
Also, codenamed “20H1,” this will be the first of two developments coming in 2020, and while we’re still month away from the final release, thanks to the previews obtainable in the Windows Insider Program, we’re now slowly starting to see the changes that will be provided with this new update.
Within this guide, we’ll highlight the brand new features and enhancements planned for version 2003 as they appear in each test preview. (It’s unclear if the Microsoft will use the “May 2020 Update,” “April 2020 Update,” or any other name for this feature update.)
What went down with Windows 10 19H2? Based on the company, the 19H2 update is incorporated in the works, but some from the features planned for the 20H1 update need a longer leap time, which is why that we’re seeing previews from the next year feature update so early. When the May 2019 Update becomes officially available, Microsoft will resume making 19H2 builds available to testers.
