Microsoft recommends to upgrade version 1903 devices to the current Windows 10 version (which is Windows 10 version 2004) as soon as possible.

Running an older version of Windows 10 may allow hackers to potentially execute harmful code on your devices via newly discovered yet unpatched security holes. So if you're concerned about your security, don't forget to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10.
