Windows 10 updates will become smaller starting with the Windows 10 Creators Update that is scheduled for April this year. Last year Microsoft announced that its Unified Update Platform (UUP) would reduce the size of Windows updates up to 35%.
The reduction in size of updates is possible because UUP uses differential updates meaning only changes that have been made since the last time a device was updated are in the download package, rather than a full build.
Microsoft has now announced that it’s rolling out the technology amongst Windows 10 Insiders. End users will start seeing reduced update downloads starting with the Creators Update.
