Windows 10.1 to launch in October 2016

Windows 10 logoWindows 10 is not here yet, but the world is already thinking about what’s next after this critical release for Microsoft, and now people with good track on unreleased Windows information claim that the company is currently working on a major update due in 2016.

This information comes from Russian leaker WZor, who has already provided us with plenty of accurate details about Windows 10, but everyone should still take it with a pinch of salt until Microsoft actually confirms the roadmap for its operating system.

WZor claims that Windows 10, which should arrive this summer, will receive a major update in 2016, and according to his information, Microsoft is aiming at October (of the next year) for the launch date.

The reason is as simple as it could be: October is traditionally Microsoft’s favorite moment to introduce new Windows versions, and this year, Windows 10 for phones is likely to launch during the same month.

The PC version, on the other hand, is expected to debut in July or August, so the first major update for Windows 10 could debut one year after the phone build.

With Windows 10, Microsoft will finally give up on shipping stand-alone releases for Windows in favor of rolling yearly releases, so the company will switch to a continuous update model that would bring improvements and new features to users at a faster pace.

The naming system for Windows will also be changed, so the upcoming update due in 2016 is expected to be called Windows 10.1, according to WZor. It’s not yet clear if Windows 10.1 is actually the official name of the Redstone update we first heard about earlier this year, but there’s no doubt that 2016 will bring us a major update for Windows 10.

If this plan goes through, Microsoft might ship a big update for Windows 10 every year, so Windows 10.2 could see daylight in 2017, followed by Windows 10.3 in 2018, and 10.4 in 2019.
