By the way we have today got some news about the first major update to Windows 10, on when it would arrive. Those who regularly interact with the platform on a variety of device types may be wondering what Windows 10 already offers, but nevertheless, we have more likely been quietly debating on when exactly will the first major update, dubbed “Windows 10 Anniversary Update” will be released to the public?
It seems like the Software maker have inadvertently answered part of that riddle by posting, then deleting, a blog post with the title “Microsoft announces Windows 10 anniversary update available Aug. 2“. Anyone for an August 2nd Windows 10 update?
Was the announcement inaccurate, of did they just intend to announce the date at a later time is officially unconfirmed yet. In reality, it would appear that someone within the Microsoft accidentally pressed publish on the blog post a little ahead of the original plan. But at the very least we can expect an official and formal unveil on the availability of Windows 10 Anniversary Update to come out from Microsoft very soon.
For now, we really have a good indication of the approximate time that the update will arrive on, then, what about the improvements and feature additions contained within? The update still was actually introduced during the company’s annual Build conference back in March of this year.
The primary focus of this update will be Windows Ink, with that intention being to integrate additional features and enhancements that will provide users with a more powerful experience when interacting with Windows 10 content through a stylus. Given a number of device types that Windows 10 is available on, it makes perfect sense that Microsoft is looking to improve that input type.
Moreover, Microsoft will also focus engineering resources on making improvements to Windows Hello as well as Cortana – the company’s prodigious voice activated digital assistant that is starting to become a pivotal part of the Windows 10 experience. Additionally, the company will also introduce extensions to its web browser, Edge, which will allow functions to be added to the browser via the third-party developer extensions.
When it hits the shelves, the Anniversary Update will be free to everyone who already have Windows 10 installed, but will require a payment of almost $119 for those looking to upgrade from earlier versions of Windows.
