April update now appears to be the final marketing name for Windows 10 version 1803. Although Microsoft still hasn’t officially reveal the name for its upcoming feature update, users are seeing that after installing build 17134, Microsoft Edge landing page to welcome users to a new version refers the rollout as “April update”.

Previous report suggested that the official name would be “April 2018 update,” as it was referred with that wording by a Microsoft employee in a video that was first spotted by Microsoft watcher WalkinCat on Twitter.

Just remember that whatever the company end up deciding as the final name, “Windows 10 April update” (via Neowin) will be the marketing (friendly name), as it’s already officially known as Windows 10 version 1803.

The Windows 10 April update was originally planned to launch on April 10, but a blocking bug that was causing Blue Screen of Death at a higher rate than desire made Microsoft delayed the rollout. Starting with build 17134, the bug is now fixed, and while the company isn’t announcing the release date, we’re expecting to release any time before the end of April 2018.

The feature update for Windows 10, version 1803 will deliver a new set of features and changes, including Timeline, Nearby sharing, and a slew of improvements in the Settings app, Fluent Design tweaks, and a lot more.
