According to Microsoft, we won’t see a Windows 10.1 or even Windows 11 for that matter. This doesn’t mean the Redmond based company won’t update its operating system, just that the update won’t be named as it was previously, in the transition from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1.
This news was declared by Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft employee and developer evangelist, at the company’s ongoing Ignite conference in Chicago. Nixon explained that the company will be pushing updates to the Windows 10 platform regularly. He stated, “Right now we’re releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we’re all still working on Windows 10,” which clearly means that future updates will also be branded as Windows 10.
The users will get an option to choose between fast updates or bundled updates; under the fast update option users will get the update as soon as it is complete, whereas the bundled one will be slower and will occur in longer cycles. The apps will be developed in such a way that they can accommodate quick or monthly updates.
The Windows 10 update for PCs is scheduled to release in the third quarter of this year whereas the update for phones will be released later. Interested people can download the technical build through the Windows insider program.
