Earlier last year Microsoft had demoed how Windows 10 will be supported on ARM devices. This is indeed a big thing since it will bring Windows 10 on tablets and other devices that run on an ARM processor. It’s for this reason that Microsoft has partnered with Qualcomm. Starting now Windows has finally started hosting Windows on ARM files and Microsoft mentioned the same at the recent IFA 2017.

The Windows 10 ARM64 was spotted by users on Windows Update servers. The ARM64 files were however attributed to different SKU’s which are further separated by different Windows 10 operating systems. Apparently, the builds are part and parcel of Window’s Unified Update Platform (UUP) and all the files together will be bundled as an ISO for each version of the Windows 10 OS.

It is most likely that the files have been included in the Windows Update Servers for Windows Insiders across all platforms. That being said Microsoft has already stated that the Windows Phones will not be included for the Windows 10 on ARM. It is most likely that Microsoft will sync the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update with the Windows 10 on ARM release. The company is hosting a keynote in London in October and is also expected to pull the wraps from new Surface products. In the meanwhile here is the list of ARM64 associated files that were found in the build,

Microsoft loyalists have been rooting for a Windows powered pocket PC since quite some time. In the late 90’s and the early 2000’s Microsoft’s Windows Mobile powered a series of PDA (Portable Digital Assistants) from various manufacturers. With the ARM support in place, Microsoft will finally be able to come up with a Pocket PC that most of us are waiting for.
