Windows 10 Spring Update is Different (Sort of)

Anyone who uses Windows 10 understands their two annual updates, the Spring and Fall. And normally, the Spring update would include major improvements and features to the operating system. The Fall update, however, was usually quite minor with anything new.

This time, however, the roles are reversed.

Nicknamed 21H1, the Spring update will feature just a few tweaks in the OS. According to Tom’s Guide, this update should be out around May and “primarily meant to improve the remote work life.”

John Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery states, “New features include multicamera support for Windows Hello and security related performance improvements.

  • Windows Hello multicamera support to set the default as the external camera when both external and internal Windows Hello cameras are present.
  • Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements including optimizing document opening scenario times.
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) updating performance improvement to support remote work scenarios.

21H2, or the Fall update, will involve a number of major features, such as a floating Start Menu, and a redesign of the user interface. Windows 10 users will be in for quite a treat in October, which is usually when fall updates are released.
