Faster Updates Promised for Windows 10 – Creators Update

creators update

Microsoft is already promising big things for the Creators Update. Introducing Unified Update Platform (UUP), Microsoft’s answer to user feedback concerning slowness and drained battery life with Windows 10 updates. The UUP process allows for delivery of smaller files and could reduce the size of the update by 35 percent. The differential download packages ensures that your computer or mobile will only download the changes that have been made since your most recent update, rather than a full Windows build. It is also anticipated that more of the update processing will be moved to the cloud. This should make updating faster for not as powerful mobile devices.

These changes stem from users that wish to see improved battery life, faster updates, control over timings of the updates, less local processing, and reduction of download sizes.

The more streamlined updates through UUP is currently rolling out to developers in the Windows Insider preview program. The rest of us will have to wait till the Windows 10 Creators Update, in 2017.
