Microsoft pushes Windows 10 May 2020 Update to more devices, Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 to get it in the coming weeks

Staff Writer

Microsoft announced today that it has started rolling out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update to more devices. According to the company’s Windows 10 health dashboard, they are now taking a “measured approach” to initial device availability and will be slowly increasing the number of devices that are eligible to receive the newest Windows update.

The Windows 10 May 2020 update started rolling out on May 27, but some compatibility issues with some devices led the company to put some upgrade blocks in place. Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 received compatibility holds due to errors and unexpected restarts due to the “Always On, Always Connected” feature.

Following the release of the June Patch Tuesday update for the May 2020 Update earlier today, Microsoft announced that this compatibility issue affecting the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 has been “mitigated,” and a fix is now in place. “The safeguard hold is estimated to be removed in the coming weeks,” the company said today.

As usual, it should take many months for the May 2020 update to become the most-used version of the OS. As of this writing, Microsoft is still investigating 9 known issues affecting the latest Windows release, and the company is also recommending users to not install the update manually until all issues have been resolved.
