Microsoft has just released a new version of Windows Insider… Version 20H1, whose release is scheduled for 2020. Four months after its alleged publication, Microsoft still does not publicly test 19H2, which will be the update of Windows 10 next October. What could go wrong?
These important Windows updates are usually finalized a month before publication, which means that the October 2010 update of Windows 10 should be finalized by September 2019. Microsoft is less than four months old for the latest version stabilized and we have not heard anything yet.
Update October 2018 Windows 10 saw a standard test process and was always packed with various bugs even delete people files. These updates need to be tested and we do not know exactly how often the public will test the next Windows 10 update before Microsoft releases it on its Windows 10 PCs.
Really, it's very strange: Microsoft had never managed a Windows 10 update like this before.
Mary Jo Foley, a prominent Windows journalist, estimates that 19H2 will probably be a smaller update for Windows 10 and that any new feature will be disabled by default. That's what his sources say, anyway.
I think it will really be like a service pack for 19H1. and the rumor is that if there are new features, they could be disabled by default

However, Microsoft has still not commented publicly what to expect from 19H2. Last February, a Microsoft blog article "We will start distributing 19H2 bits to insiders later in the spring," said Bournemouth, but the summer starts in two and a half weeks.
Microsoft talked about a lot of changes to the Windows 10 development process after the update of October 2018. Despite the promising "transparency", Microsoft still does not speak. A more formal communication from Microsoft would go a long way.
