Microsoft today announced the full availability of Windows 10 "April 2018 Update" for the stable branch of the OS. The official ISO images can be downloaded from the company's web site. Existing Windows 10 users can install it via Windows Update.

However, Windows Update won't install Windows 10 version 1803 automatically. You should manually check for updates to get it. Microsoft is going to roll out it via their automatic delivery service starting on May 8.

Windows 10 version 1803, now known as April 2018 Update, includes features like Timeline, Focus Assist, a brand new Xbox Game Bar, Dictation and text suggestions for the physical keyboard, etc. Its complete change log can be found here:

So, you can download the OS from the official Microsoft web site as described in the article Download Official Windows 10 ISO Images Directly Without Media Tool. If you prefer the Media Creation Tool method, it is described in detail here. It is an official tool, which also can be used to download the ISO image.

  1. So, where actually is the download ISO link?

    I guess it is on Microsoft’s site at / en-us / software-download / windows10ISO
    but accessing with a mobile’s user-agent instead

    I’d use Ctrl-Shift-I then Ctrl-Shift-M on Chrome using Samsung S5’s User-Agent, finally accessing that download link. i.e. using Chrome’s mobile emulation tool inside developer tools.

    There is also tb·rg-adguard·net as alternative, which I checked SHA-1 hash are the same as the ISOs downloaded from microsoft’s download site.

  2. I notice with the new update, I get some kind of pic of planet earth as I boot up. I’m assuming it’s a login screen or something, but I’ve been all through the settings, I can’t find where to change it. It’s really getting on my nerves. Any ideas?
