A little later, the update will be available to Windows 10 devices that are not involved in the UUP Insider Program.

In November 2016, Microsoft shared its plans to migrate from a standard update deployment system in Windows 10 to a Unified update platform. The main advantages of UUP are reducing the size of updates and reducing the time it takes to deliver and deploy updates for Windows 10.

Microsoft claims that the new method can reduce the size of updates by about 35%. UUP uses differential update packages – devices receive only the changed code, and not all packages again.

Differential boot packages contain only changes that have been implemented since the previous device update, and not a complete assembly. After implementing UUP, when switching from one major update to another, users will notice a decrease in the size of downloaded files by about 35 percent.
