Microsoft has released a new batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 as part of the monthly Patch Tuesday rollout supposed to fix security issues in products like Windows and Office.
This time, the cumulative updates for Windows 10 are the following: KB4048955 (1709), KB4048954 (1703), KB4048953 (1607), KB4048952 (1511), and KB4048956 (RTM).
Since they land on Patch Tuesday, the focus is mostly on security bugs, but these cumulative updates also include a large collection of performance improvements and non-security issue resolutions, all of which should be installed on Windows 10 devices as soon as possible.
In the past, we’ve seen lots of cumulative updates causing issues on the Windows 10 systems they were supposed to be installed to, and it remains to be seen if similar bugs are experienced this month as well. Our Windows 10 devices updated correctly and no failed installs occurred.
Truth be told, Microsoft has managed to substantially reduce the percentage of failed installs since the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update and the Fall Creators Update likely brings more improvements in this regard.
First Patch Tuesday for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709)
This is the first Patch Tuesday rollout for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update after the staged release kicked off on October 17. The new OS is shipped to systems across the world in stages, as Microsoft wants to address compatibility issues before everyone gets the new OS version via Windows Update.
As with every security update, users are recommended to install these new cumulative updates as soon as possible, though ID admins should keep in mind that a reboot is required. This means work needs to be saved on workstations in their networks before beginning deployment.
We’re going to detail the contents of the latest cumulative updates in separate articles in just a few minutes and follow-ups to this story will be posted below when they’re ready.
