A Major Update to Windows 10 Is On the Horizon

A Major Update to Windows 10 Is On the Horizon

Back in 2015, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 would be the last version of Windows, meaning that we should not expect Windows 11 anytime soon. Still, a major update to the Windows 10 operating system has been confirmed to be on its way. What’s coming with this next update to Windows 10, and what does it mean for your business?

What We Know

If we’re being honest, there is not much currently known about the upcoming update to Windows 10. The update, code-named Sun Valley, will reportedly bring several enhancements and updates to the user interface. CNet reports that some of these changes will apply to the Start menu (hopefully in a good way), Action Center, File Explorer, and Taskbar. It is also hinted that changes made to the user interface will borrow in part from the unreleased Windows 10X operating system, an OS that was in development for dual-screen devices like the Surface Pro. 

Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, has teased the update, going so far as to build the hype train at Microsoft’s Build 2021 Conference from May 25-27. Here is what he had to say during the keynote speech:

  • “Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the next generation of Windows. Our promise to you is this: we will create more opportunities for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications. We look forward to sharing more very soon.”

It’s also worth mentioning that this update could include changes to the App store. In particular, the Verge reports that the Windows App store will likely allow developers to submit any Windows applications, which is a huge step toward what Nadella refers to as creating “more opportunity” for developers to distribute their work to users.

When Will It Release?

Again, not much is currently known, but the words “very soon” imply that we won’t have to wait long for more information. It is thought that this updated version of Windows will be released sometime later in 2021. Please keep in mind that all of this is hearsay at this time, as nothing has been officially confirmed by Microsoft, but we will keep our ears to the ground for more information as it releases.
