What you need to know
- The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is planned to arrive later this month.
- In an update to its driver shiproom schedule, Microsoft has blocked out May 26-28 as a Feature Update timeframe.
- This could indicate the May 2020 Update is expected to arrive on one of those dates.
The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is nearly ready to ship out to the public, and now we could have a better idea of when Microsoft is planning to roll it out. In an update to its driver shiproom schedule (via Neowin) for 2020, Microsoft has blocked out May 26-28 as a timeframe for an upcoming Windows 10 feature update. Without an official announcement, this is the best hint at when we can expect the May 2020 Update to begin its public rollout.
The driver shiproom schedule is a document Microsoft uses to give hardware manufacturers an idea of when it plans to ship updates so they don't launch driver updates that could cause instability directly before or after an update is released. Besides the feature update Microsoft has blocked out for later in May, it also has every Patch Tuesday cumulative update timeframe blocked out on the calendar.
This doesn't necessarily mean that the May 2020 Update will arrive between May 26 and 28, but it's a strong indication that's when Microsoft is planning to launch it. As Neowin points out, the 1903 update arrived on May 21, 2019, which corresponded with the feature update block of May 21-23 of the 2019 driver shiproom schedule.
