Microsoft's big Windows 10 Anniversary Update could be launched close to a year after the release of Windows 10 itself. A new report claims Microsoft is targeting a late July release for the free update.

Windows 10 Anniversary update

According to

While the company has not explicitly said when it will be released, insiders at the company have acknowledged that the current road map is for the update to be finalized in mid-July. As with all timelines, the release date could change, especially since we are a few months out and road maps are used for guidance and are not always hard dates. Considering that Windows 10 was released on July 29th, it would make sense that the company would release the Anniversary update on or around that date; the 29th is a Friday.

Microsoft first announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update at Build 2016 in March and that it would be a free update for all current Windows 10 users. Members of the Windows Insider program have been testing a number of features that will be included in the full update with recent preview builds of Windows 10. Microsoft also plans to update the Xbox One at the same time with the update, which will bring Windows Store app to the game console.
