Windows 8.1 Update 2 reportedly hitting RTM this week, debuting at Worldwide Partner Conference 2014

Microsoft is set to hit RTM (Release to Manufacturers) with Windows 8.1 Update 2 sometime this week, that's if the rumor from WZOR is anything to go by. It's believed Microsoft is planning to announce the Update 2 at the company's Worldwide Partner Conference this July. It would make sense for Redmond to unveil the next update for its desktop OS to an audience containing main manufacturing partners.

Rumr: 8

As well as Update 2 for Windows 8.1 being signed off, WZOR also notes that Microsoft may be looking to show an early preview of Windows 9 (potentially "Threshold"), the next major instalment in the pipeline, though there's little to go on as to what this would entail. While the update is rumored to be hitting RTM shortly, it's not known when the company will be releasing Update 2 to the general public, but we have covered previous reports looking at September.

It's worth noting that you should ensure you're up-to-date with everything released by Microsoft so you're eligible for future upgrades. WZOR is generally a solid source when it comes to these rumors and while it would make sense for Microsoft to unveil Update 2 next month, we do ask everyone to take this report with a grain of salt. Just in case. What are you looking forward to in Update 2?
