Windows 10 Redstone 4 will be called 'Spring Creators Update'

The release of the next big Windows 10 update, codenamed Redstone 4, isn't far off, but Microsoft hasn't yet officially announced what its final name will be at release. However, it looks like Microsoft will be leaning on the "Creators Update" naming scheme again, opting to call Windows 10 version 1803 the Spring Creators Update.

References to the Spring Creators Update had previously been included in a Microsoft blog post and the Feedback Hub, but they were later removed. Now, the naming has popped up as a reference in the latest Redstone 5 build, which rolled out to Skip Ahead Insiders this week (via The Verge).

It's still not an official announcement, but the name's presence in the OS is a little more concrete than previous references. If it does end up being the final name, this will be the third time Microsoft has leaned on the Creators Update naming convention, following the 2017 releases of the original Creators Update and the Fall Creators Update.

An official release date hasn't been announced, but the Spring Creators Update is expected to roll out in April. It will include more Fluent Design elements spread throughout hte UI, along with a new Timeline feature, improvements to Edge and Cortana, and more.
