Microsoft is reportedly planning to release the “first major update” to Windows 10 beginning next month. The software is technically called the “Threshold 2” of Windows 10 but will otherwise be known as the “Windows 10 Fall Update,” according to Microsoft pundit Paul Thurrott.
Thurrott said that the Windows 10 Fall Update will be available through Windows Update and that users will be able to jump right up to the new version without applying additional software patches or worrying about reactivation. The Fall Update will include most of the changes that have already been released in beta form to participants of the Windows Insider program. Chief among the enhancements should be improvements to Microsoft’s new Edge browser and tweaks to Cortana.
Thurrott didn’t provide an exact date for the Fall Update, but said it will arrive sometime in November.
