Windows 10 Fall Creators Update now available for all devices

Microsoft makes Windows 10 Fall Creators Update broadly available, which means it's now the right time to get it.

Although Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709) originally launched on October 17, 2017, it was actually not available for every device. However, since the original release, Microsoft has been gradually testing the update and gradually rolling it out to more devices, and starting January 11, 2018, the software maker announces that the update is fully available for all devices running Windows 10.

In the announcement, Microsoft says that it’s “available for all customers globally – consumer and commercial alike,” which means that version 1709 is also available for Windows 10 Enterprise customers.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is available through Windows Update, but if your device isn’t seeing the new version, there are still other ways to get it:
