The decision to hold back the rollout seems to reflect Microsoft's more cautious approach to pushing out feature updates to Windows 10. It was originally thought that the last Insider release, Build 17133, was the final version or "RTM" to be released during last week's Patch Tuesday.

Build 17133 is how Microsoft refers to the Spring Creators Update, as even though it was expected to launch on April 10, it still hasn't been officially named.

The release of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update was expected this month, but the launch date is now seemingly increasingly likely to slip into May. The company said that the build carries no new features and only brings fixes for some issues. "Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we chose to create a new build with the fixes included".

The update is rolling out as a preview build to the Windows 10 Insider team, a group of testers that receive pre-release builds in order to test things and make sure features are implemented without any major issues.

Microsoft's unprecedented bungling of the final release of Windows 10 version 1803 has an interesting side-effect.

"In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of BSOD [Blue Screen of Death] on PCs, for example". As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. At this point, it seems like it might be closer to a few weeks, as Microsoft will have to test build 17134 with Insiders, and also test a cumulative update with it. While most experts agreed that the delay must have been caused by a larger issue that Microsoft detected in the last minute, speculation ranged from a serious security issue to bugs that decreased system stability.

Maybe this update was meant to be pushed out to Windows phones too but the handsets it was tested on just couldn't cope with the extra features.
