Microsoft has announced that it will soon reduce the download size of Windows 10 updates. In a post on its official blog, the company unveiled its Unified Update Platform (UUP), which states that download size can be reduced by about 35% when updating from one major update to another. The company says that for now, only changes between the builds will be downloaded instead of the full build.

The company also said that update data sent to client devices was reduced when checking for updates. Plus, Windows 10 updates on phones and tablets don’t need to be updated more than once, if the user is lagging behind by a few builds. Windows will be updated individually instead. This is similar to how Windows 10 PC updates work.

The company said in a statement on its blog, “We plan to roll out UUPs in phases – for mobile devices from today. We expect to start using UUP for PC Insider builds later this year, followed by IoT and HoloLens. Our team is excited to see the results of a lot of hard work to start publishing mobile builds using UUP and integrating our updated publishing platform for Windows. “

Microsoft unveiled its second major update to Windows 10 a few days ago. The manufacturer’s update says its goal is to bring the platform closer to mixed reality as it will add 3D and AR components through software and hardware improvements.
