While we’re here patiently waiting for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, it is abundantly clear that time is near due to the lack of exciting features in the newest Insider update. It’s not surprising then that a new report proves Microsoft is now adding the finishing touches to the operating system.
As it stands right now, no other new features are in active development. The goal is to work on the bugs and overall improvements. We’ve also come to understand there’s a possibility Microsoft might also improve the Settings app, though the publication did not specify what we should be expected.
As for the Anniversary Update version number, it could turn out to be 1607. The number makes a lot of sense seeing as the update will land in July 2016 (2016 and the 7th month equals 1607). Microsoft did something similar with the big November 2015 update as its version number was 1511.
Microsoft is also planning to launch a new update in 2017, internally referred to as Redstone 2. This particular update is expected to mature Windows 10 a great deal, with a more pronounced effect on Windows 10 Mobile. This update is intended to launch several features that will not make the Anniversary Update. We’re not certain what these features are, but no doubt we’ll find out in the coming months.
Recently, Microsoft released a new version of Windows 10 for Insiders to help prepare for the impending Anniversary Update. Furthermore, the Anniversary Update may not be the only cool thing the software giant is planning to hit us with this year: Rumors claim there’s an Xbox One Slim along with a new Xbox system in development, along with the concepts of4K video playback and VR expected to continue playing a big role going forward.
