Home » Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO will arrive on August 2

Industry reporter Mary Jo Foley confirmed on her Twitter that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO will be available on August 2. She had a conversation with a Microsoft spokesperson who assured her that there wouldn’t be any problems with the availability of the Anniversary Update ISO on the same day when the AU will be released.

Many users were skeptical that Microsoft would shift the release date at the last minute and won’t keep its word about the release of the Anniversary Update on August 2. Today is the last day Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users are allowed to upgrade to Windows 10 for free if they purchased a valid license for their current operating system. Those who took this step are now waiting to get their hands on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which will be released in just four days.

According to Microsoft, the AU will be released in stages and will eventually reach all 350 million devices in the near future. Still, there are users wondering if it will be possible to download the ISO of the major release on the same day. After talking to a Microsoft spokesperson, Mary Jo Foley posted on her Twitter account, saying “For those asking, MS spokesperson just told me Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISOs will be available from MS on Aug. 2, too”.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO will be useful for users who wish to proceed with a new installation of the operating system. Also, by installing the AU via ISO, they will overcome the predictable congestion generated by the Windows Update service, so they will be able to download the new update on August 2.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update will include several new features like Windows Ink, which will allow Surface owners to interact better with the tablet’s interface using the stylus, an upgraded and smarter Cortana, extension support for Microsoft Edge, and the transformation of Skype into a universal app.
