Microsoft has today announced the next major update to Windows 10 at its hardware event in New York City. Originally codenamed Redstone 2, the update will be called "Creators Update" when it launches to the public early next year. The update will feature a number of features and improvements over the Anniversary Update, with a big focus being on creating content as the name suggests.
The update will be rolling out to all Windows 10 users for free in the early part of next year. Much like the Anniversary Update, we expect this update to rollout in waves, being that it is one of the few "major" updates scheduled for 2017. The update will be available for Windows 10 PC's, tablets, HoloLens and more.
With the Creators Update, Microsoft has rebuilt the Paint app, bringing it to the Universal Windows Platform with pen support, and new features such as 3D support for devices like HoloLens. There's a lot going on for Windows 10 in the coming months, and Insiders will get first dibs trying out new features over the next few weeks.
The Creators Update will also feature other improvements, not all related to creators, that will be a natural evolution and improvement over the previous versions of Windows. We'll have more details on these features as the show up. In the meantime, let us know what you think of the name in the comments below!
