At JM Addington Technology Solutions & Kairos Digital Dynamics we’re usually a tad bullish on Windows Updates: they’re put out for good reason(s). However, Microsoft’s latest “Feature Update” (read: a big one, the Fall Creators Update or 1809) has been plagued with issues:
- It deleted data in some cases
- Windows Media Player, and a number of other apps, just stopped working (including Apple iCloud)
- Certain computers with Intel chipsts (which is most of them) don’t work correctly as of yet
This is definitely one to wait to install, maybe even until the next major update is released in the spring of 2019. If you’re a managed customer of either JM Addington Technology Solutions or Kairos Digital Dynamics we’ve you covered already. Otherwise, delay unless you’re either adventurous or ready to hire someone to come undo it for you!
