Windows 10 Redstone 1 to launch in waves, not everyone will get It on August 2

Windows 10 logoWindows 10 Anniversary Update, also known as the first wave of Redstone, or Redstone 1, will go live on August 2 for PCs and mobile devices, but there’s one major important thing that everyone should have in mind when saving this date in their calendars.

The rollout of Windows 10 Anniversary Update will take place in stages, so not everyone will receive the final build on August 2.

Dona Sarkar, the head of the Windows Insider program, has explained in the latest edition of Windows Weekly (via Neowin) that Microsoft expects some users to be disappointed that they’re not getting the Anniversary Update on August 2, but everyone needs to know that the whole process takes place gradually around the world.

So while some devices will receive the Anniversary Update on August 2, others won’t, and the only option in this case is simply to wait.

“It's going to take some time. We'll start with PC and phone, and it's going to be a global rollout. It's going to take time. Everyone's going to freak out wondering ‘where's my update?,’ ‘is it time yet?’ and ‘it didn't come.’ So it's going to take a little while to roll out to everybody,” Dona says.

Insiders will be the first to receive the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, but for the moment, Microsoft hasn’t said anything about the final build version or the date when it will be released. What we know, however, is that we’re in the final development stages of the Anniversary Update, and if everything goes according to plan, RTM should be compiled in the next couple of weeks.

Without a doubt, there will be users disappointed with the fact that the release of Windows 10 takes place in stages, but this kind of makes sense for Microsoft, given that more than 350 million devices are already running the operating system. The Anniversary Update will be released for PCs and mobile phones powered by Windows 10.
