Microsoft has taken advantage of IFA 2017 to finally announce the exact date of arrival of the next major update of Windows 10 the Fall Creators Update.
Although we knew that it would arrive in autumn as its name suggests, now we have confirmed that it will arrive on October 17, 2017.
As is customary from that day will begin to be distributed and will take some time to reach all users.
Given that there are already more than 500 million devices with Windows 10 in the world, the free update is sent in parts and arrives first to the most recent computers.
An update loaded with news
The Fall Creators Update will bring with it a lot of news that we have already talked about a bit, but one of the most anticipated has to do with Fluent Design, the new design language for Windows 10 that we are waiting for.
This update will also add things like OneDrive Files On-Demand, a new feature that lets you access all the files we have in the cloud without having to download them.
In addition, for the first time, we will be able to access a GPU performance panel from the Task Manager.
Microsoft Edge will also receive multiple updates, including an option to restore it to its original state, improve bookmark storage, and migrate settings from Chrome.
Windows Defender will begin using an AI to combat malware and will also receive a special feature to combat ransomware.
The update will be installed depending on your Windows Update settings and your scheduled restart times.
Now that we have the date of the Fall Creators Update, the Insiders who opted to get ahead, have already received the first version of Redstone 4, the next update that still has no official name.
A Microsoft representative told us during the IFA, that the company will keep updates every two years for Windows 10 they are working on, are the best way they have found to please users and offer the best experience.
