Microsoft to ensure smaller sized updates
November 21, 2016, 4:10 pm

Microsoft is now starting to test a new Unified Update Platform (UUP) that will make a big difference to the download size of Windows 10 updates.
The new UUP uses differential downloads that only include the changes that have been pushed out since you last updated a Windows 10 PC. Microsoft is expected to start rolling this out to PC builds later this year, alongside HoloLens devices.

The real benefit for Windows 10 users will be when they move from one major update to another, as Microsoft expects download sizes to decrease by around 35 percent. That is a great saving for those on low-bandwidth connections, or people with internet caps. This new technology could also help Microsoft roll out changes to Windows 10 machines a lot faster.

Microsoft has already successfully updated more than 400 million Windows 10 devices.
