Windows 10 Threshold 2 could launch on November 2

Windows 10 logoEarlier today, we reported to you that Microsoft's looking at November as the possible release month of the so-called Windows 10 Fall Update, but now it turns out that the launch date is actually closer than anyone thought it could be.

A report by WinBeta claims that the upcoming update, which some people refer to as Windows 10 Threshold 2, is very likely to see daylight on November 2, which would actually make sense given the fact that previously, people close to the matter indicated that Microsoft planned to release it in early November. But nobody actually expected it to arrive this early.

Threshold 2 will be released via Windows Update just like any other patch and won't require too much user interaction, at least not more than a regular operating system update.

Microsoft plans to release it this way to make installation smoother, but at the same time, this also helps prevent any possible errors that might occur in the case of a full new build, as it's the case of the Windows Insider program.

And since it'll be offered to everyone on Windows 10 for PCs, the Fall Update will arrive on all computers that have already been upgraded to this OS version and will become the new default version.

This means that if you're already on Windows 10 and want to reset the PC, the version you'll get will be Windows 10 Threshold 2, and not the RTM that was released in July. The same in the case of upgrades who install it on top of Windows 7 or 8.1, with their PCs to be directly updated to this new OS version.

Keep in mind that for the moment, Microsoft hasn't yet confirmed the release of this update, so the date here could always be pushed back in case of a major bug. What we know for sure, however, is that a major update for Windows 10 is coming and it is just around the corner.
