The last major HoloLens software update to have been released was the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which dropped in mid-2016. Since then, Microsoft has released two major Windows 10 updates, those being the Creators Update and Fall Creators Update, but oddly none of those releases were ever made available for HoloLens.
While Microsoft hasn't explained why this was the case, the company has today announced that the next feature update for HoloLens will be coming early next year, which likely means it'll be released alongside Windows 10 Redstone 4.
We are also working to bring some of the most asked for software updates for HoloLens to our existing customers. We are committed to delivering an update to existing customers sometime early next year.
Microsoft says this release will focus on the "most asked for software updates" from developers and businesses, we don't know much else about this update at this time. It's also unclear if Microsoft plans to take advantage of the HoloLens Insider Program, which hasn't seen a new Insider build in over a year.
Bringing a new software update to HoloLens is exciting for Insiders and developers in possession of HoloLens devices as it means new APIs, features and functions are in the pipeline. Now that the Windows Mixed Reality platform is officially here, new software updates to HoloLens will only be beneficial for developers.
