Microsoft releases first Windows 10 Redstone 5 ISO files for Insiders

Throughout Microsoft's testing of Redstone 5, the next major Windows 10 release, the company hasn't made any ISO files available for Insiders. This week, that changed with the release of the first batch of ISO files on the Windows Insider downloads site (opens in new tab) (via Neowin).

The build currently available to download is 17713, which first rolled out to the Slow ring last week. With separate files available for the general preview build, as well as Enterprise and Home China, you'll be able to create installable media on a USB drive or DVD to perform a clean install of build 17713. Do note that you'll have to sign up for the Windows Insider Program to participate in testing.

Microsoft is starting to wind down development on Redstone 5 as it approaches its expected release later this fall. For Insiders curious about what's coming next, Microsoft recently reopened the Skip Ahead ring to begin testing the next major release, currently operating under the codename 19H1.

For now, you can grab the 17713 ISO files (opens in new tab) from the Windows Insider website.
