It’s here. Right on track, Microsoft has officially released the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which is now the latest version of the operating system that brings with it a host of new additions.
Redmond made the rollout official in a blog post, along with some surprising hardware announcements about the Surface Book 2 and a new Surface Performance Mouse. But the spotlight here is still the Fall Creators Update, also known as Redstone 4.
This new version of the OS comes with an enhanced focus on Mixed Reality and 3D, while several other small enhancements and new features seal the deal.
Things like My People, OneDrive Files On-Demand, new bells and whistles for Microsoft Edge, a Mixed Reality Viewer, a reimagined Photos app with Remix and 3D effects, pen improvements, Eye Control, and a whole bunch of polish.
Via the new design philosophy that the company calls the Fluent Design System.
Microsoft has detailed many of these features in the post above, saying:
“Today, we deliver the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update offering breakthroughs in creativity – from bringing mixed reality and 3D to the masses, to faster broadcasting for gaming, to turning photos and videos into real memories, and so much more. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can be experienced on a wide variety of Windows 10 PCs and on a range of Windows Mixed Reality headsets available for the first time today.
We believe the PC is the ultimate canvas for creativity and can empower people to create like never before. This is why we are building Surface to be the ultimate laptop and are delighted to introduce the Surface Book 2, the most powerful Surface yet.”
This release marks the second big update to the operating system for the year, and the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be rolled out to users in the following weeks and months.
Obviously, the safest way to get Fall Creators Update is to wait for it to show up in Windows Update, to ensure now compatibility issues are expected. The software titan is also sure to release new ISO files people that want to do a clean install of this newest version of the OS.
