Users are being forced to upgrade regarding Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Users will have no choice but to install the latest November 2019 Update.Microsoft has started the process of forcing users who are still running the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The users now have no choice but to upgrade to the most recent November 2019 Update.

The same event has already happened to those running the April 2018 Update, and that earlier forced upgrade scheme kicked off in July (instigating automatic upgrades to the May 2019 Update, which of course was the latest version of Windows 10 at the time).

So this is the second time Microsoft has applied an upgrade cattle push, successfully, and the motive behind this action is security – because the end of service date for the relevant update is on the horizon. Users must therefore upgrade, or they may miss out on the dynamic security coverings.

However, the timeframe in which Microsoft is forcing these compulsory upgrades is well in advance of what the company has originally announced. The official posture remains that the rollout procedure will be started several months in advance of the end of service date to provide suitable time for an even update procedure.
The end of support deadline for the October 2018 Update is May 12, 2020, so the users have five more months – a little more than ‘several months’ in our books.
Slow start

According to ZDNet reports, Microsoft stated that it will gradually start the phased procedure, so it’s likely that initially, not all that many people will be given the push to upgrade to the November 2019 Update.
However, in a couple of months’, the users are likely to witness the same situation as they had faced with the May 2019 Update, when the situation appeared like the users have suddenly started getting massive adoption. All of these massive adoption actions were almost coming from users who were running those updates which were the striking end of service (the April 2018 Update).

So in short, we can say that we now expect from the past trends, a flood of upgraders coming across to the latest November 2019 Update early on next year.
The October 2018 Update was superbly stormy, as a large number of Windows users around the globe may well recall, and a lot of people weren’t given the upgrade as a result. They were bounced straight from the April 2018 Update to the May 2019 Update.

In the last, according to AdDuplex stats , the data is easy to collect that what versions of Windows 10 people are running, around 25% of users remain on the October 2018 Update.
