Alongside using Windows Update, Microsoft also makes available the ISO file for every new release of Windows 10, including for the April update. The only issue is that when you use a Windows 10 device to download the ISO from the Microsoft support website, you’re only given the choice to get the “Update Assistant” or “Media Creation Tool.” If you don’t want to go through the extra steps, there is a workaround to download the ISO file of Windows 10 version 1803 directly from the Microsoft servers without having to use the Media Creation Tool. You just need to trick the site to think you’re using an unsupported OS.
