[EXCLUSIVE] In just a few months’ time, Microsoft will release a new Windows 10 version. Most likely, the new OS version will bear the name of Windows 10 April 2019 Update — provided that Microsoft keeps the current name pattern.
We’re sure that the new OS version will revolutionize the personal computing industry, allowing users to immerse themselves in an impressive never-before-seen 3D environment.
Microsoft is determined to further innovate the tech world and the upcoming OS version is only the beginning. According to sources from inside the company, VR is the next step.
Windows 12 is all about VR
Yes, you’ve read that right! Our sources from the company confirmed that Microsoft is planning to release a new operating system called Windows 12 in early 2019. Indeed, there will be no Windows 11, as the company decided to jump straight to Windows 12.
The reason behind this name is rather a symbolic one. Windows 12 is the bridge between the classic Windows OS and the new innovative OS. It marks the beginning of a new era in personal computing: the VR era.
To be honest, the news that Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 12 will be focusing entirely on VR is not that surprising for us. As a quick reminder, at the beginning of January we sort of predicted that Microsoft could be looking to integrate VR directly into Windows 10. However, we never thought that this would happen so fast.
It is worth mentioning that Microsoft will provide a free VR headset to each and every user who upgrades to Windows 12. HP, Lenovo, Acer, Asus, Dell will build VR headsets for Microsoft. The Redmond giant wants to make VR available and affordable for the general public.
To conclude this surprising piece of news, we remind you that today is April Fools’ Day. Microsoft is indeed trying to make VR accessible and affordable to the general public, but we have no clue as to what features Windows 12 will bring — and if there will be a Windows 12 OS.
