When, What and Where of the Windows 10 Creators Update

When, What and Where of the Windows 10 Creators Update

Attentive Insiders will also notice that the build numbers for the PC and mobile versions of pre-release Windows 10 updates no longer sync up.

This is quite consistent with the discussion between Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president in Microsoft's Operating Systems Group, and Mashable. Also, the report claims that Microsoft will make the platform lot cheaper than other Windows 10 versions such as the Windows 10 Home or Pro.

Starting this month, Microsoft will not be shipping updates to Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs powered by seventh-genration processors like Intel's Kaby Lake and AMD's Ryzen.

However, despite our hopes that Microsoft will unleash a Surface Phone, it's not likely we will see or hear anything about the elusive Surface Phone in the May 2 event. Even if Windows Cloud and the CloudBook give Chromebooks a run for their money, it could face an even tougher comparison: Windows 10 itself. If you are in the market for a notebook in that price range right now, Microsoft is discounting the price by a few hundred bucks to $1,299. However, reports indicate that a Surface Book successor won't be unveiled, neither will a new Surface Pro device, or the alleged Surface Phone.

Ars Technica's sources confirmed the Surface Phone has not been groomed to be showcased on May 2.

At the same time, Google has been busy adding more features to its device.

These can also now be previewed in thumbnail form thanks to "tabs you've set aside", where you can restore a collection of closed tabs, or just the one. Yet, it is highly unlikely that the firm can pull off a spectacular upgrade by May 2. Microsoft's Surface brand has come a long way, the Surface Pro 4 is a respectable rethinking of its oldest sibling, and the Surface Book is thought to be some of the nicest consumer computing hardware that money can buy.

Microsoft then ruled that Windows 10 would be the only supported edition on seventh-generation and later CPUs and simultaneously dictated a substantial shortening of support of both editions. Of course, we can expect to see upgrades later in the year but the Surface Pro 5 isn't making its debut on May 2. The news portal revealed that Belfiore is focused on the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.

Comment and let us know if you are looking forward to Microsoft's announcements during its upcoming May event. That said, this device should be an affordable offering suitable for the classroom, and rather than the full-fledged Windows 10, this laptop could run the rumored Windows 10 Cloud.
