The last major update to Windows 10, the Anniversary Update, was released to the general public in August last year. Since then, Microsoft has been planning two major Windows 10 updates and now, they are almost set for release. The Creators update will be released in April and the second one will come in later in the year- we are not exactly sure of when the second one will be released.
The confirmation comes from the Ignite Australia conference, where Microsoft showed a slide which outlined Windows 10’s release cadence.
Although the Creators update is due out in a few months, Microsoft has not given an official date for its release. The as-yet unnamed second update is expected to be released as a beta to Windows Insiders when the Creators Update goes live to the public, and will officially launch four to eight months later – a point in time before the end of the year, Microsoft hopes.
Microsoft has not yet detailed any features in the second Windows 10 update of 2017. A new people bar was expected to be in the Creators Update but was not, so it’s likely that it will arrive in this second update.
We’re expecting to hear a lot more about this second Windows 10 update from Microsoft’s Build 2017 developers conference in May.
