If you're dying to have it now, though, you can go into your PC's settings and have it check for updates, per the instructions from Microsoft here.

Aside from DXR, the Windows 10 October Update also packs other features.

In the video above you can see the Windows 10 Your Phone app open and displaying recent photos and text messages. If you browse with Edge on PC, all that activity will show up in your phones Timeline, and vice-versa.

For iPhone users, this is rather limited. As before, you can send a web link to your computer to pick up where you left off. To recall, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update was announced at IFA by Microsoft as the sixth major update after the November Update, Anniversary Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update, and the April 2018 Update.

Microsoft is moving to block the update being offered to affected machines anyway. They can choose a time to finish the installation and reboot.

Then there's Windows Timeline on Phone that performs a similar function and lets you find websites and files across devices.

But every security expert with a microphone has been telling us for years to keep our devices and apps up-to-date to avoid hacker shenanigans, and it's hard to blame them.

So now some owners will have to update their hardware in order to get devices with the proper Windows 10 driver/OS support or they will be forced to maybe try some Linux Distro.

Tip: make sure that your system has enough free storage space to install the Windows update.
