The first big Windows 10 bug fix update could come as early as next week

While the launch of Windows 10 got mostly good reviews from the media and the general public, most did mention that the operating system still has some bugs. Microsoft is reportedly planning to release a bigger update very soon that will deal with at least some of these issues.

According to The Verge, the update has the label 'Service Release 1' (SR1) and will be released to Windows 10 users sometime in early August, and perhaps as soon as next week. Again, SR1 won't add any new features; it will simply try to stamp out some of the bugs that have been discovered in Windows 10.

The story adds that Microsoft is working on a larger Windows 10 update for October that will add some new features, including the previously revealed Messaging app and support for Chrome-like extensions in the Microsoft Edge web browser. Members of the Windows Insider program will get first crack at checking out these new features sometime in the coming weeks. Microsoft is also planning to release updates that could improve battery life in Windows 10 laptops.
