Microsoft released cumulative updates for several supported versions of the company's Windows 10 operating system on June 18, 2019.
The two notable updates KB4501371 and KB4503288 are for Windows 10 version 1809 and 1803, two of the three supported "Home" versions of the Windows 10 operating system.
