If you’re the kind of person that runs both macOS and Windows side by side, Apple just made the process of getting the latest version of Windows 10 a bit easier for you. While some Mac users were previously reporting troubles installing the latest featured Windows 10 update, Apple has just released an update to macOS Sierra, improving Boot Camp support for media-free installation of Windows 10 Creators Update (via Neowin)

The latest news is tucked away in the changelog for the macOS Sierra 10.12.5 update, which reads, “Adds support for media-free installation of Windows 10 Creators Update using Boot Camp.” With this so, those on macOS who would like to clean install the Creators Update no longer need to install the Anniversary Update first, and then upgrade to the Creators Update using the Update Assistant tool.

Instead, macOS users with supported Mac models can now download the ISO files for the Creators Update from Microsoft and then proceed to use Boot Camp to install Windows 10. You can read our how-to guide so you learn how to proceed in the installation process, or you can check out Apple’s freshly updated support website for a look at Mac models which can run Windows 10, and more.
