Microsoft reveals commitment to biannual Windows 10 updates

A Windows 10 feature is being tested that could save you plenty of battery life

A Windows 10 feature is being tested that could save you plenty of battery life

According to Microsoft TechNet, this option can be accessed on Windows 10 Creators Update. Windows 10 Redstone 3 is the next major update for the Windows 10.

The company just released its most recent version of Windows, the Windows 10 Creator's Update, and said the next feature update is now targeted for release in September.

But one thing you will notice immediately is that the development cycle is going to get compressed with this new plan from Microsoft.

I'm speculating here, but maybe that is why Microsoft released the first Redstone 3 build in between the early release and official availability this month - to get a head start - with three PC builds already released to Insiders for testing. Although Windows Insider will soon get these new features in upcoming preview builds.

The attorney for the Thomas family sang the praises of law enforcement Thursday, expressing how unbelievably elated they all are. If the press conference is not live streamed from the TBI's Facebook page, it will be streamed from their affiliates' sites.

One of the biggest changes that came with Windows 10 is the new model of support and upgrades with which the Microsoft operating system became a kind of continuous development system, also known as "Rolling Release".

IT pros who want more clarity from Microsoft about the company's update schedule plans can join a question-and-answer session the company has scheduled for next week.

Committing to a twice-per-year feature release schedule is created to make updates "more manageable and predictable for easier enterprise deployments", wrote Bernardo Caldas, General Manager, Windows Commercial Marketing in a Microsoft blog post. 'The next Windows 10 feature update, ' Caldas added, 'will be targeted for September 2017, ' referring to the Windows 10 Redstone 3 update which will bring a range of new features including the new power-saving system for limiting the CPU usage of background tasks.

In terms of application compatibility, Microsoft has announced four new investments: Upgrade assessment tools, application compatibility testing, Office 365 ProPlus monitoring services and reporting, tracking and resolving issues. The latest Build is now live and users can grab it by going to Settings Phone update Check for Update. That means any Kaby Lake or Bristol Ridge Ryzen users can install the security updates for Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 after using this unofficial patch.
