Next feature release of Windows 10

The next feature update for Windows 10 (known in the Windows Insider Program as 19H2) will be a scoped set of features for select performance improvements, enterprise features and quality enhancements. To deliver these updates in a less disruptive fashion, we will deliver this feature update in a new way, using servicing technology (like the monthly update process) for customers running the May 2019 Update who choose to update to the new release. In other words, anyone running the May 2019 Update and updating to the new release will have a far faster update experience because the update will install like a monthly update.

For consumer or commercial users coming from versions of Windows 10 earlier than the May 2019 Update (version 1903), the process of updating to the new release will be the same as it has been and work in a similar manner to previous Windows 10 feature updates, using the same tools and processes.

As this release is a September-targeted release of Windows, commercial customers using Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions of version 19H2 will continue to enjoy 30 months of servicing; for more specific information see this blog post.

Next steps

As with all our feature updates, we utilize a multifaceted quality strategy that includes automated and manual testing and leverages the Windows Insider Program to obtain user feedback and data on quality. The next update to Windows 10 will be no different. We will begin releasing 19H2 builds to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring starting today, with new features being offered in future Insider builds as they are ready

Following that announcement is the release of Windows Insider Preview Build 18363.10000 (19H2) Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362.10000 (19H2) | Windows Experience Blog.

Remember - A day without laughter is a day wasted.
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart.

Windows Insider Preview Build 18362.1006 Released to a subset:  UPDATED: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362.10005 (19H2) | Windows Experience Blog.

UPDATE 7/17: Today we have released 19H2 Build 18362.10006 for a subset of Windows Insiders that turns on the features delivered as part of Build 18362.10005 (noted in the below blog post) earlier this week. Please note that Build 18362.10006 is only going out to a subset of Insiders in the Slow ring. That means not everyone in the Slow ring will get this update.

The changes and fixes are those that were announced but not included in the previous release and can be found in the referenced article.

Windows Insider Builds 18362.10012 & 18362.10013 Released:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362.10012 & 18362.10013 (19H2) | Windows Experience Blog.

Today we are releasing 19H2 Build 18362.10012 and Build 18362.10013 to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. As a reminder, we are testing the ability to ship these updates with features turned off by default so that we can then turn them on via controlled feature rollouts. This helps us gain better feedback on overall build quality. A subset of Insiders in the Slow ring will have features turned off by default, and another subset will have them turned on by default. This means not everyone in the Slow ring will see new features right away:
  •   IF you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10005 – you will receive Build 18362.10012 today with features turned OFF by default. This includes the below mentioned features as well as the features from the previous release.
  •   IF you are on 19H2 Build 18362.10006 – you will receive Build 18362.10013 with features turned ON by default.
If you’re on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update and just joining your PC into the Slow ring to take 19H2 updates, it’ll be a virtual “coin toss” as to whether your PC gets features turned on or turned off.
