Earlier this summer, Microsoft introduced the Skip Ahead option for the Fast ring members of the Windows Insider program. Unfortunately, it did not take long for the Redmond giant to pull out this option, thus denying Windows Insiders the chance to check out some Redstone 4 builds.
Skip Ahead allowed a group of Windows Insiders in the Fast ring to go even further than usual and to test releases that should arrive after the Fall Creators Update, a major Windows 10 update that is expected to be ready for the masses by the end of September.
Redstone 4 is the next major Windows 10 refresh and is supposed to arrive after the upcoming Fall Creators Update. If everything goes as planned, it should be ready for its public release in the summer of 2018.
The Windows Insiders who chose to enable Skip Ahead did not get any updates last week and, although some sources claim they would get some more early builds in the future, everything should be taken with a grain of salt until we hear reports of new Redstone 4 builds reaching them.
