Microsoft pushes Windows 10 Anniversary Update to Current Branch for Business

Several months after rolling out to consumers, the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is now ready for business users. Microsoft announced that the Anniversary Update has been promoted to the Current Branch for Business (CBB), and is now ready for deployment.

From Microsoft (opens in new tab):

To reach this milestone, we have addressed nearly a thousand items of feedback from all types of customers, including enterprises performing pilot deployments. With hundreds of millions of devices already running the CBB version 14393.447 installed by KB 3200970 or any later update, as indicated in the Windows 10 Release Info page, organizations can be assured Windows 10 1607 is fully ready for them.

In addition to the consumer-facing features that the Anniversary Update brings to the table, the update also contains security features valuable to business users. Those include various new identity and breach protections, and more.

  • Naughty by Nature? Well played, sir.
  • Yeah, you know me! Cheers.
  • Good to see
  • Does this mean that the enterprise editions of Win10 are now eligible for the 1607 upgrade?
  • No build for mobile????
  • huh? Did you read the article?
  • At last! I can check my CBB ring in SCCM 1606.
  • How much disk space does it take to apply the Windows 10 Anniversary Update? I'm currently running Windows 10 Enterprise, but my machine has very little space on the primary drive.
  • There have been a great many improvements in stability and reliabilty in the Anniversary Update over the past few months. It's about time.
  • Finally! Great news!👌
  • So do those "nearly a thousand items" ever make it into consumer-facing updates? Most probably don't apply to everyday consumer use, I get that, but they're quoting "all types of customers" as the source for feedback.
