Microsoft confirmed today that the next feature update for the company's Windows 10 operating system, the Fall creators Update, will be out on October 17th, 2017.
Today, we’re pleased to announce that the next update of Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update, will be available worldwide October 17. With the Fall Creators Update, we are introducing some fun, new ways to get creative.
Lenovo did leak the release date earlier today in a press release, but edited the release afterwards to remove the date from it. Considering that Microsoft confirmed the date today, Lenovo might edit the release a second time to add the official date to it again.
The official blog post on the Windows Blog by Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President, Windows and Devices Group, highlights some of the new features of the Fall Creators Update, and some products that take advantage of them.
Here are the highlights according to Microsoft:
Microsoft hardware partners announced a whole range of new devices, and Microsoft choose to highlight some on the Windows blog.
Head over to the Windows blog for a full rundown on new products that Microsoft teased there.
Microsoft plans to distribute the new version of Windows gradually over the course of four months. Windows users and administrators can enforce the upgrade to install it as early as possible, or wait until Windows Update selects the PC for the update.
