Windows 10’s next update will be called ‘Spring Creators Update’

Another creators update

Microsoft is wanting to reuse its “Creators Update” naming for a third Windows 10 update. The software giant has strangely not yet officially named its next Windows 10 update, due one month from now, however it has been testing a future update that seems to reveal the spring update name. “Windows 10 Spring Creators Update” has been spotted in the most recent test builds of the Redstone 5 update expected that would be released later this fall.

Microsoft first launched Windows 10 Creators Update the previous spring, followed by the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in the fall. The new Windows 10 Spring Creators Update naming was originally spotted in Microsoft blog posts a year ago, however this is the first time it has appeared in the operating system itself. We’ve connected with Microsoft for clarification on the naming, yet The Verge understands Microsoft had been considering changing its Windows 10 update naming to center on a single theme of objects or individuals. It doesn’t look like that is occurring for the following Windows 10 update, however.

Microsoft is expected to make the Windows 10 To spring Creators Update available toward the beginning of April, with new features like Timeline, HDR support, and much more Fluent Design changes. Microsoft is presently starting to test its next update, codenamed Redstone 5, that will be available later this year. We haven’t seen any major changes presently, however it looks like tabs in File Explorer and other apps will be available in this upcoming update.
