Microsoft hasn't yet confirmed the official name of the next major feature update for Windows 10, but we may now have a better idea of what to expect. Despite earlier indications that Windows 10 version 1803 (codenamed Redstone 4) would be dubbed the "Spring Creators Update", it now appears Microsoft has opted for a much more mundane name: the April Update.
As first spotted by Windows Latest over the weekend, Microsoft has modified the welcome page for seen in Microsoft Edge after major feature updates, which now says "Welcome to the April update." Anyone can currently view this page in any browser to see the welcome message.
It's still not an official announcement, so the final name could always change at release. However, it's a strong indication that, as we get closer to the update's release, "April Update" may end up as the final moniker. The only question is what that may mean for future updates, particularly if another April update is released next year.
In any case, we should know the final name soon. The spring update was widely expected to release on April 10, but Microsoft opted to hold its initial RTM candidate back from public release after discovering a blocking bug. Since then, a new build, 17134, has quickly made its way through the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings. Assuming testing goes off without a hitch, 17134 could head out as the public release relatively soon.
