Microsoft Confirms Second Windows 10 Update Coming This Year

We were only treated to one major Windows 10 update last year (the Anniversary Update), but it looks like Microsoft will be blessing us with two in 2017. Aside from the oft-discussed and elaborated Creators Update, which is scheduled for April, we will be getting another in the Fall season, possibly in October or November. While MS hasn’t yet hinted what that’ll bring, I am placing my bet on the debut of their brand-new design language: Project NEON.

آ…Microsoft is planning a second update for 2017 for Windows 10, and now the company has confirmed these plans. At Ignite Australia last week, spotted by Rafael, Microsoft has confirmed that they will release another update for Windows 10 sometime in 2017. Unfortunately, the slide does not state when that will happen but I have been hearing October/November timeline for release. As for what might be included in this iteration of Windows 10, it’s likely a safe bet that we will see the People Bar that was delayed from the Creators update and the Neon design language should start to show up as well. Beyond that, it’s a bit too early to say, but Microsoft has begun significant work on this release and is starting to already look at development plans Redstone 4.
