Massive Windows 10 Upgrade Changes

Microsoft announced one of the biggest Windows 10 upgrades last week. Bill Karagounis, Microsoft’s director of Program Management for the Windows Insider Program & OS Fundamentals, announced the next generation of delivery technologies are being incorporated into the latest Insider builds called the Unified Update Platform (UUP).

“One of the biggest community and customer benefits of UUP is the reduction you’ll see in download size on PCs.  We have converged technologies in our build and publishing systems to enable differential downloads for all devices built on the Mobile and PC OS,” said Karagounis.

“A differential download package contains only the changes that have been made since the last time you updated your device, rather than a full build. As we rollout UUP, this will eventually be impactful for PCs where users can expect their download size to decrease by approximately 35% when going from one major update of Windows to another. We’re working on this now with the goal of supporting this for feature updates after the Windows 10 Creators Update; Insiders will see this sooner.”

And UUP will become universal for all Windows 10 versions like smartphones, tablets and PCs. UUP is expected to be rolled out when the Windows 10 Creators Update launches. And the Creators Update is likely going to roll out in March. Unfortunately, the Xbox One and Xbox One S will not get UUP though.
