Microsoft releases Windows 10 Creators Update SDK to developers

Today, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Creators Update a little early to those willing to take the plunge, and now it has a treat for developers to coincide. The Creators Update SDK is now available, letting developers tap into some of the new tweaks and features introduced with the latest big update to Windows 10.

There are a ton of new capabilities for developers to take advantage of, ranging from more secure Windows Hello integration for apps to Bluetooth GATT support, which is critical for notifications on wearables. Developers can also take advantage of more powerful APIs for Surface Dial, along with improvements to the inking experience, API support for the Windows Mixed Reality platform, and much, much more. For a full, detailed look at what's new for developers, you can check out Microsoft's developer documentation (opens in new tab).

If you want to dive in right away, you can download the latest Windows 10 SDK directly from Microsoft (opens in new tab) to start getting your apps ready for the Creators Update's full rollout on April 11.
