Windows 10 build 18362

Windows 10 build 18362 (19H1) leading to version 1903 now in the Slow ring

The Slow and Fast ring now have the same build, which means that the Windows 10 April 2019 Update is almost complete.

Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 18362 for devices enrolled in the Slow ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is preview number 39 releasing to testers, and seventh build available in the Slow ring, as part of the April 2019 Update development.

Windows 10 build 18362, according to the company, is just a minor update that doesn’t introduce new features or changes. However, it’s a significant release because it’s the first time throughout the 19H1 development that the Slow and Fast ring have the save build number.

Usually, when both rings have the same build indicates that the feature update is almost finalized, but without some last-minute patches.

If true, it also means that soon we could be seeing a build in the Release Preview ring. However, this time around there’s a chance of multiple releases in this preview before version 1903 becoming available to the masses.

As for the improvements, this flight includes all the same fixes and the same build in the Fast ring.

Although there are no ISO files for Windows 10 build 18362, the update is available immediately through the Slow ring. This preview build will download and install automatically on your device, but you can always force the update from Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and clicking the Check for updates button.

Warning: This is a pre-release version of Windows 10, and it’s not recommended to install on your primary machine. If you’re planning to test this build, make sure to create a backup of your files before proceeding.
