Microsoft released the second batch of Windows 10 cumulative updates for various versions of the operating system last July. The latest Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 update) will get this set of updates today.
The second batch focuses on non-security updates that are optional, tagged as “Preview,” and come as part of the non-optional updates with next month’s Patch Tuesday updates. A little confusing, yes … Today’s release focuses on quality improvements and bug fixes, including a fix for the issue that prevented some users from accessing “internet connectivity on some mobile modems after upgrading to Windows 10, version 2004.”
