Windows 10 version 1909 (19H2): All new features and changes

UPDATED 7/8: Windows 10 version 1909 (19H2) is expected to release in September, and here are all the new features and changes that Microsoft has added to the new version thus far.

Windows 10 version 1909, 19H2 development

Windows 10 version 1909, codenamed “19H2,” will be the eight major refresh since the original release, which Microsoft is working to release in September 2019.

19H2 will be the second semi-annual update arriving in 2019, and while it’ll include new features and improvements, unlike previous releases, this is expected to be a minor update available as a quality update, similar to a service pack.

According to the company, the new approach will help to complete the update on time, and it’ll be a less disruptive deployment as the Windows 10 19H2 won’t require a full installation of the OS. However, because it’ll be an incremental update, devices will require the Windows 10 May 2019 Update before you can install the 19H2 update manually.

In this guide, we’ll highlight the new features and improvements shipping with Windows 10 version 1909.
