Windows 10 to get two major updates in 2017

Windows 10 Anniversary Update to get two successors in 2017
Windows 10 Anniversary Update
Next to the usual minor patches, Microsoft plans to issue two major updates with new features next year.

Microsoft's recent update that pushes Windows 10 up to version 1607, also known as Windows 10 Anniversary Update, brings a wide range of long-awaited features, such as extensions support for the Microsoft Edge browser or Windows Ink. Unfortunately, this update is apparently the last one of its kind this year, but will be followed by two siblings next year.

Microsoft's Nathan Mercer unveiled the following in an official blog post: "Windows 10, version 1607 is our third Windows 10 feature update released. Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017."

According to Windows Central, the first major update for 2017, currently known as Redstone 2, is scheduled to arrive in the first part of 2017. Its successor, obviously dubbed Redstone 3 for the time being, should come out next summer or in the first part of 2017's fall. Testers will surely get the early versions faster but remains to see when. We will keep you posted as usual, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
