Microsoft has identified a key factor in why devices may struggle to achieve the state of fully up to date. The update can take nearly eight hours to complete the update. The company’’s program manager has clearly explained about the update.
In a post on the Microsoft Tech Community website, David Guyer, Program Manager for Windows Updates in Endpoint Manager, explains how a device running needs two periods of time connected to the internet to successfully update. The first period spans “two continuous connected hours” followed by “six total connected hours” after an update is released.
Guyer repeatedly references Windows 10 with regards to the Update Connectivity measurement. 11 updates are meant to be 40% smaller and more efficient, so it could turn out the Update Connectivity minimum will decrease when we reach a point where the majority of Windows users have upgraded to Microsoft’s latest OS.
