Microsoft says that the Creators Update is now "fully available" to all Windows 10 users

In April, Microsoft announced that it had commenced the rollout of the Windows 10 Creators Update. As with the Anniversary Update that it released last year, the company said that the update would proceed in 'phases', explaining:

The first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners. We will then expand the Creators Update release to additional devices based on the feedback we receive during the initial phase.

Today, the phased deployment has ended, and the floodgates have opened. Microsoft announced that it's "now moving from a targeted offering to full availability for all compatible devices running Windows 10 globally via Windows Update."

Microsoft confirmed last week that some Windows 10 devices, with older Intel Atom 'Clover Trail' processors, will not be able to install the Creators Update. Those PCs will continue to be supported with security updates until 2023, but they will not be eligible to install any further feature updates to the OS.

Microsoft also said today that it's encouraging business and enterprise customers to start upgrading their Windows 10 systems to the Creators Update, which is otherwise known as Version 1703 of the OS. It added that "commercial customers should feel confident to deploy this release broadly across their organizations."

Microsoft is now working on finalizing the next major update to the OS, known as the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is expected to arrive in September.
