Windows 10 to get two major updates next year

Microsoft just rolled out its big Anniversary Update for Windows 10, but the company is already looking forward to future upgrades. In a recent blog post focused on the latest update, the company also mentions plans for two more coming in 2017.

The software giant doesn’t reveal any specifics for what to expect in 2017, but we may already know a little bit. Microsoft’s next big Windows 10 update is allegedly codenamed “Redstone 2” and is reportedly set to debut early next year. It might even launch alongside the rumored Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2, according to The Verge.

The subsequent Redstone 3 update will likely arrive in late 2017, but it apparently won’t be as big as Redstone 2. However, that could change if Microsoft decides to add more features as it builds the update.

The Windows 10 Anniversary is currently free for Windows 10 users and comes packed with some awesome new features. That includes new touchscreen capabilities with Windows Ink, along with improvements for Microsoft’s Cortana AI assistant and its Edge browser.
