For now Microsoft won’t provide additional ISOs on its Insider site and rather updates will be available through Microsoft’s production channels.

Under Nadella’s leadership, Microsoft has shifted focus to ‘mobile-first, cloud-first’ and will deliver future Windows as an OTA update rather than being available on disk or flash drives.

Insiders won’t be getting latest Builds via Windows Update and whatever Build they are on will be shown as “up to date” if testers check for new builds. Microsoft will pull the ISOs from its Insider site within next 24 hours and all pre-release activation keys will no longer activate Windows.

Windows 10 will be a staged roll out and will be available for download only Windows Insiders on July 29.
