#1

With the Creators Update now out in the wild, Microsoft is already hard at work on the next major Windows 10 update, which is scheduled to launch in September. Last year, Microsoft had revealed that it was planning two major Windows 10 updates for 2017. This year the company has disclosed its roll out the new “predictable twice-per-year” update schedule for Windows 10.

This means that, under this new biannual release schedule, Microsoft will be rolling out two major Windows 10 updates every year, one in March (which was the Creators Update this time), and the other is September. “Windows is committing to a predictable twice-per-year feature release schedule, targeting September and March of each year,” the company wrote in a blog post.

Further, the blog also revealed that each Windows 10 feature release will be serviced and supported for 18 months. This schedule now aligns with Office 365 ProPlus updates.

According to Microsoft, the new “predictable” updates makes it easier for consumers to know when the next big features are coming and advantageous for OEMs hoping to ensure the latest version of the software ships with their PCs. “We’ve also heard our customers want more predictability and simplicity from this update servicing model to help make deployments and updates of Microsoft products easier,” Microsoft wrote.

In addition to that, Microsoft also announced that Windows 10 is now running on more than 400 million monthly active devices, and it continues to be the fastest-adopted version of Windows ever. In its blog, the company also writes that consumer feedback shows that “Windows 10 is the most secure version of Windows ever released.”

While the Microsoft blog doesn’t detail on exactly what its next major Windows 10 update will include, the company recently started allowing Windows Insiders to start testing what is codenamed Redstone 3. According to The Verge, the next Windows 10 update may include features like power throttling for background apps, along with the return of the people integration into the taskbar that was originally scheduled for the Creators Update.
