October 9th is the day of automatic availability for the October upgrade, also known as 1809, for Windows 10.
This is the final upgrade offered this year. “If you already have a Windows 10 PC and have automatic updates enabled, the update will be delivered to you when it’s ready for your machine,” said Jennifer Chen, Microsoft communications manager. Microsoft will restrict the automatic update to those systems likely to successfully install it first.
They are making these determinations by sifting through telemetry data mined by Windows 10 devices. Microsoft releases the updates to the most viable candidates first, then waits on telemetry data reports to make changes and bug fixes before re-releasing to the masses.
This worked for Microsoft in the past (Spring Creators Edition). The spring update was a large update that took quite a while to install on most systems. No word yet on the size of the 1809 update but, if it’s anything like the spring update, get ready for some down time.
