Windows 10 to Get 2 Major Updates in 2017, Reveals Microsoft
  • As per a report, the first update is codenamed Redstone 2
  • The second update is reported to be codenamed Redstone 3
  • Microsoft recently pushed its Anniversary Update to Windows 10

Technology giant Microsoft has announced that it would roll out two major updates for Windows 10 next year after releasing a third and final update in 2016 - the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

"Windows 10, version 1607 is our third Windows 10 feature update released. Based on feedback from organisations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017," the company wrote in a blog last week.

As per a report by Windows Central, while the first major update for 2017 - codenamed Redstone 2 - would release in the early part of 2017, the second one - codenamed Redstone 3 - might be released in 2017 summer.

This update pattern is similar to the one that the Threshold update wave followed. Much like Threshold 2 was to Threshold 1, Redstone 3 is likely to be a much smaller update compared to Redstone 2. The pattern also indicates a twice-a-year update cycle for the operating system.

Microsoft is currently in the middle of Redstone 2 development with the latest internal builds now being compiled around the 14900 range, the report said.

The Redstone 1 update, known as the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, started rolling out to Windows 10 PC and tablet users from August 2. Microsoft had announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update back in March during its annual Build conference. The upgrade brings more support for stylus with Windows Ink and other enhancements for its Edge browser, with most notably extensions support. The update also brings improvements to Hello and Cortana.
