Microsoft pauses Windows Insider builds as Creators Update launches

Kit McDonald

The Windows 10 Creators Update is now available through the Update Assistant! It’s exciting news for users eager to update their device, but Windows Insiders that are already used to the latest features are even more anxious to get started on builds for the next big release: Redstone 3.

Insiders on Twitter are already asking Dona Sarkar when they can start testing for Redstone 3 builds. Of course, with the Creators Update planned to start rolling out next week, Sarkar has announced that now is not the time.

There isn’t an estimated time that the pause of updates is in effect. The last build Windows insiders received was build 15063.14, which was a preparation for the inevitable rollout on April 11. Windows Insiders, are you ready for Redstone 3 or are you taking this downtime to enjoy the Creators Update? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @OnMSFT.
