Windows 10 19H1 is officially version 1903, could be April 2019 Update

The name for the upcoming "19h1" update to Windows 10 has made its first appearance. It looks like Microsoft is planning to use the wording "April 2019 Update" as the final name for this release.

Starting with build 18323, Windows 10 identifies itself as "version 1903" in the About Windows dialog.

Windows 10 April 2019 Update Version 1903

The name "April 2019 Update" has been spotted several times by Windows enthusiasts and researchers keeping a close watch on the OS, but it hasn't been confirmed officially by Microsoft. This name is currently used in PowerShell, referring to the upcoming release.

While this name is consistent with the current naming scheme of Windows 10 releases, it can change if Microsoft decides to use a more marketing-oriented name. As you may remember, PowerShell showed "Spring Creators Update" as the name for the then-current release several months ago, however, Microsoft eventually went with the name "April 2018 Update".

Windows 10 "April 2019 Update" is expected to include a number of new features. Here are some of them:

and more.

Once again, we should remind you that "April 2019 Update" is not the officially announced name, which means that it can always change as we get closer to the release date.

  1. Microsoft: we will release it in march but we will call it april release.

    When you check out the “features” there is a zero incentive to upgrade.
