Microsoft has announced that its latest Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now officially available for all compatible devices, the company has announced.

“I’m happy to announce the Fall Creators Update (version 1709) is fully available for all compatible devices running Windows 10 worldwide. Full availability is the final phase of our rollout process,” John Cable, Director of Programme Management, Windows Servicing, and Delivery wrote in a blog post late on Thursday.

Microsoft essentially started rolling out the Fall Creators Update on October 17 last year and it is the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100 million devices.

“We’re pleased to announce that the Fall Creators Update was the fastest Windows 10 release to reach 100mn devices, all while achieving higher customer satisfaction ratings compared to prior updates,” Cable added.

Microsoft also highlighted the need to protect devices and the information in them amid the recent “Meltdown” and “Spectre” CPU vulnerabilities.

“We build the latest security technology deep into the Windows OS to provide defense-in-depth features that prevent evolving malware and other vulnerabilities from impacting your device,” Cable noted.

The cyber-safety and security-related research and development cost the company over $1 billion every year.

The Fall Creators Update for Windows 10, released in October 2017 includes support for Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR).

While announcing the update, Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President for Windows and Devices, had said that the free update will also include a new photo app and many tweaks to the overall design and usability of Windows 10.
