Doesn't work for me.
First, it did not show in Vantage.
Downloaded from Lenovo and ran it manually - after it says it needs to disable BitLocker, it then says I already have this version running on my laptop.
I have all auto-updates for Windows and Vantage disabled so not sure how I got it already. Haven't restarted my laptop in many, many weeks now. Just always sleep it.
Checking System Information it says I currently have: LENOVO 05WT21WW, 2018-10-08
So apparently my BIOS is 3 months old but won't update to the newest one. Ha, for some reason I'm just not surprised....
Post your experiences here.

I've alredy got in touch with engineers on this matter. Currently waiting for the response.
Software upgrades thru Lenovo Vantage are not pushed immediately after they're been published on support site. Sometimes time difference between software releases via these channels can be 2 weeks.

Units that were shipped in the period of 8/2018 to 10/2018 have BIOS version 19ww, update 21ww is for them. All units shipped starting 10/2018 got 21ww from the factory.
