Updating Windows can be very annoying as it drains way too much data especially if your internet connection isn't stable or their servers are having issues. With macOS I don't have such issues and I get to know how many gigabytes the update will cost me before downloading the entire thing which is not so with Windows Update.
Last night I wasted over 7GB of data trying to upgrade the Windows operating system on my macbook's bootcamp partition to the recently released April Update for Windows 10 and it was all in vain. Thank God I was using 9Mobile's BlazeOn Data Service so it only cost me N1,000.
Woke up this morning did a little bit of research and discovered that Windows officially offers the full ISO direct download to individuals assessing their site on devices that aren't running Windows OS.
It's very easy to do as will be shown below.
