Windows 10 marked a big change in the way Microsoft offers updates to Windows. No longer do you have to pay for operating system upgrades when a new version releases. Instead, everyone can upgrade to the latest version of Windows for free.

But this doesn’t mean that the latest Windows version is so simple. Let’s take a look at what the latest Windows 10 update is, how Windows 10 changed this game, and what we can expect looking forward.

What Is the Latest Version of Windows?

Technically speaking, Windows 10 is the newest version of Windows. But this is only part of the story, because Windows 10 regularly receives major updates that significantly change it.

Instance - Time - Writing - Windows - Version

For instance, at the time of writing, the current Windows 10 version is the May 2019 Update, which is version 1903. Microsoft typically releases two new feature updates to Windows 10 each year, aiming for March and September.

Note that in addition to major versions, Windows 10 has many different builds as well. See our guide on finding your Windows 10 version for more info and to see which one you’re on.
