We're reaching the two year mark for Windows 10, with the first iteration of the operating system reaching end of service, according to Microsoft. Version 1057 of Windows 10, which was the original rollout, will no longer receive monthly updates from the company. 

As such, Microsoft will pushing not-so-subtle notifications to Windows 10 devices that are still sporting the 1057 port of Windows 10, offering up the Creators Update of the operating system. 

While we're not ones to needlessly update when not necessary, it would be in user's best interest to make the switch.

If you've been lax in updating Windows 10, expect some notifications to head your way.
