Microsoft is planning to release the Redstone 3 update in September
Windows 10 to be updated twice a year
Microsoft announced its plans to roll out the next major update for Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3, in September 2017. Furthermore, the company is planning to release two feature updates each year from now on.
Microsoft wants to create a predictable schedule for the upcoming Windows updates, with two major updates per year â€“ one in the first half of the year and one in the second. Each OS version will be supported for 18 months after it’s released to Production devices.
The company already started shipping Redstone 3 PC builds to Insiders in the Fast Ring, while the situation around Windows 10 Mobile remains unclear. Microsoft hasn’t yet released the Creators Update to the 13 officially supported phones, and Windows Insiders are yet to receive builds from the RS3 branch.
The Redstone 3 update for Windows 10 is expected to introduce a new design language, adaptable shell, improvements to Continuum and more. Windows Insiders should be able to test the new features in the coming months.
