According to industry sources, Microsoft is almost ready to start finalizing the next Windows 10 Update, that will be released in the first quarter of next year as the Creators Update. Mid-January will apparently start the sign-off phase, all major features will be implemented by then.

Microsoft is busy adding the last features to current Windows Insider builds and is starting to finalize the Windows 10 Creators Update according to industry sources who told us, that the sign-off phase might begin as early as January 10th. For the Petri IT Knowledgebase, mid-January sounds like the timeframe where Microsoft will indeed finish implementing new features and switch to bug-hunting and smaller GUI changes.

There is no timeline how long this last phase will take, but based on previous cycles, it might take approximately two months, which means that the final version might be available as early as mid-March of 2017 unless major bugs are found that could cause delays.

After the Creators Update, which was initially codenamed Redstone 2, Windows 10 developers will shift their attention to yet another Windows 10 update, that is expected for late 2017, the Redstone 3 update. Microsoft will also integrate their ARM emulation layer into Windows 10 next year so it can run on smaller and lighter Cellular PCs with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors with integrated LTE, that are expected to arrive in the second half of 2017.
