- The Windows 10 19H2 Update will officially be called the Windows 10 November 2019 Update.

The Windows 10 19H2 Update will officially be known as the Windows 10 November 2019 Update. Microsoft shared the name in a new blog post and explained that the update is in its final steps before an official release.
The naming is not that surprising considering when the Update is being released. In the past, Microsoft used a naming structured that relied on seasons such as the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update but switched to a format with a month in the name to reduce confusion in a previous update.
People at Microsoft believe that Windows 10 build 18363.418 is the final build. This build is already available to Windows Insiders in the Release Preview Ring.
The November 2019 Update is different than Microsoft's usual major updates. Instead of requiring a large download and being delivered through a standalone release, the November 2019 Update will be delivered just like a normal Patch Tuesday release. The November 2019 Update doesn't have as many new features as previous major updates. Instead, it focuses on fixing bugs, improving performance, and introducing minor new features.
