Committing to a twice-per-year feature release schedule is created to make updates "more manageable and predictable for easier enterprise deployments", wrote Bernardo Caldas, General Manager, Windows Commercial Marketing in a Microsoft blog post. They will be pushed to the users as soon as they're ready.

There will be fewer releases for the basic enterprise version of the Office and Office 365 ProPlus because Windows 10, Office 365 ProPlus and Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager are now aligned on the same schedule.

However, the three feature updates released so far have been spaced further apart compared to the new plan.

The Redmond outfit had previously said the latter would be one of two major updates to Windows 10 this year, the next of which we now know will roll out in five months.

Similar to the current schedule, Windows 10 feature upgrades will continue to be serviced and supported for 18 months, receiving routine security and cumulative updates.
