1. New Update Policy
The major feature updates are now separate from the more frequent security updates. The feature updates are no longer automatically downloaded and installed, only a note appears in the Windows update menu and the user can manually initialize the update. But when the support of the currently used Windows 10 build comes to end of life, the feature update will be installed automatically again. The individual builds are usually supported and provided with security upates for 18 months. This innovation also applies to Windows 10 Home, where previously updates could not be deferred.
