Windows 10 20H1 will RTM in December under Azure schedule

Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 20H1 update, which was expected to ship in spring 2020, will be finalized early. According to Zac Bowden’s information from Windows Central, the 20H1 will RTM in December, 3 months early than usual.

Previously these feature updates were completed in March and September, which now expected to be done in December and June. This is because Microsoft is shifting the Windows 10 update development cycle by 2 to 3 months, and each release development gets 7 to 9 months.

The December completion date is the result of Microsoft’s Windows 10 development cycle alignment with Azure, which was reported by ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley earlier this year. For this reason, we got to test 20H1 early, and also there will be minor release instead of a proper feature update for the upcoming November 2019 Update.

Moreover, the company will shift the entire schedule of Windows 10 development with 20H1 being done in mid-December, and 20H2 will RTM in June 2020 alongside Windows 10X. Windows 10X is a version of Windows 10 which is going to be used in dual-screen foldable devices, including the Surface Neo and Lenovo Thinkpad X1 PC.

However, Zac is unsure about when these versions will ship to the public by saying, “Microsoft could start shipping the update to the public as early as January, but none of my sources seem to be clear if that’s actually what’s happening. Microsoft may decide to keep pushing out new feature updates in the spring and fall, utilizing the Slow and Release Preview ring for extensive testing of the final build before it goes to the public.” So, we may see new feature updates being done earlier than what have seen in the past as Windows is now operating under Azure’s development schedule.
