Microsoft Confirms Two Major Updates Planned For Windows 10 In 2017

Following this week’s big Anniversary patch, Windows 10 will continue to evolve with another "major" update planned for early next year and a "minor" one in the second or third quarter. While new features are always exciting, I hope they spend more time polishing the UI and fixing what is still inconsistent, like desktop and taskbar menus.

آ…the first major update for 2017 (codenamed Redstone 2) will release in the early part of 2017. The second major update scheduled for 2017 is codenamed "Redstone 3", which I've heard is being targeted for a Summer/Early Fall 2017 launch. This will leave around 4-6 months between Redstone 2 and Redstone 3, which is similar to the update pattern that the Threshold update wave followed. Redstone 3 will likely be a much smaller update compared to Redstone 2, much like Threshold 2 was to Threshold 1.
