How to know if there are new patches from Microsoft for all their products? Is there any schedule for the release of those patches or updates? The answer is Patch Tuesday. Patch Tuesday is the monthly patch cycle of Microsoft which means that Microsoft will release patches for Microsoft products every Second (2nd) Tuesday of the month except for emergency patches. IT guys will now have a clear schedule on when to prepare for the patch deployment and even test the existing applications before deploying the patch.

*It is recommended for all to regularly patch their devices for security reasons.
