When Windows 10 originally in July 2015, users on Windows 7 and Windows could get the update for free, which was generous on Microsoft’s part but the update was programmed to automatically download automatically, sending a lot of users hurtling over their broadband data caps. Microsoft naturally received a lot of complaints and now with the latest big update for Windows 10 around the corner, the company has said that the larger updates won’t be pushed out, only the critical updates.

Creator update

The new Creator Update is free and will be out soon, but Microsoft have said that this time around, the method in which the OS polls for updates should be better tuned to deal with low data caps for users. A spokesperson from Microsoft told news website Supersite Windows that Windows 10 will now avoid the large updates and instead will push the important security patches first, as a priority.
