Microsoft has officially announced that the worldwide rollout has begun for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for PCs. The new version number is 1607
Microsoft has already stated that this roll out of the free update Windows 10 will be conducted in stages; in other words, not everyone will be getting the Anniversary Update today on their PC. It will depend on a number of factors, including what device you own, where you live and how you actually install the update. In a blog post, Microsoft stated:
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is being rolled out to Windows 10 PCs across the world in phases starting with the newer machines first. You don't have to do anything to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update if you've chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device. However, if you don't want to wait for the update to roll out to you, you can manually get the update yourself on your personal PC. If you're using a Windows 10 PC at work, you will need to check with your IT administrator for details on your organization's specific plans to update.
This update will add a ton of new features to Windows 10, most of which have already been tested by members of the Windows Insider Program. They include the addition of Windows Ink support, extensions for the Microsoft Edge web browser and much more. The Anniversary Update will be released to Windows 10 Mobile devices "in the coming weeks."
