Microsoft will automatically upgrade systems that are still on W10 October 2018

Microsoft has started phased automatic updating of consumer systems that are still running Windows 10 October 2018 Update. Support for this version will end on May 12, 2020.

Microsoft starts the automatic update a few months before Windows 10 October 2018 Update, or version 1809, reaches its end-of-service status. The company says it does this to have, in its own words, sufficient time for a smooth update procedure.

These are the Home and Pro variants of Windows 10 1809. They will no longer receive updates from 12 May 2020 and security problems will therefore not be resolved from that date, with a few exceptions. Support for the Enterprise and Education variants will only end on 11 May 2021.

The most recent version of Windows 10 is version 1909, or the November 2019 Update. Users who are running an earlier version can install this by manually updating via Windows Update. At the beginning of this year, Microsoft released version 1903, or the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
