The anniversary update was announced back in March and will be free for all users. It’ll feature new features inside Microsoft Edge, like support for Windows Hello on websites, advancements in apps such as Notes, new Maps features and more. Considering Windows 10 launched on July 29, it seemed that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update would come around that time as well. Sounds like it’ll just be a few days later.

Update: Microsoft pulled the page. Here’s what it looked like:
