Windows 10 Fall Creators Update lands October 17th, Microsoft confirms

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update lands October 17th, Microsoft confirms

Headlining the package is Windows Mixed Reality, a long-teased update that will add support for cheap virtual reality headsets from Microsoft's biggest PC manufacturing partners. Smart Ink uses artificial intelligence to inking, allowing people to draw more flawless squares or turn boxes into a table. Like its predecessor, the Fall Creators Update brings few large changes to the 500 million Windows 10 PCs out there, but lots of smaller new improvements and updates. Windows Defender keeps getting better too, with cloud intelligence built in, constantly monitoring your system against potential attacks and exploits.

Acer and HP will come out with Mixed Reality headsets before the holidays and Asus will release one next spring.

Lenovo may have just leaked the release date for the upcoming feature update of Windows 10, the Fall Creators Update, by accident.

To activate the feature, you will need to download the Cortana app for Android or Cortana for iOS. Technically speaking, Microsoft's main competitor for the Oculus is their HoloLens project, but their mixed reality headset offers an equally interesting experience at a smaller price point.

Microsoft plans to release the Windows 10 "fall creators update" on october 17.

Microsoft Windows Inking lets users ink directly onto PDF's, making it easier to comment and share with others. Currently, Microsoft is finalizing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and the testing is expected to be completed by the end of September.

Another thing that's going to be added on Windows 10 is the integration of OneDrive to the Photos App.

The company redacted the press release, but by that time it was already too late, as the news made it on Twitter and other social media outlets. Microsoft also is planning to release a new Xbox One X dedicated game console device on November 7.

Windows Mixed Reality, however, was a larger focus.

Device Support Quite a lot of the IFA talk centered on the devices that will be available when the Windows 10 fall creators update gets released on October 17, as well as the devices under development.

So, if you're eager to get your hands on the Fall Creators Update, you can either play guinea pig with the Insider Preview right now, or wait just over a month and a half for the software to reach RTM status.
