Build 2016 saw the announcement of Windows 10 Anniversary update, but Microsoft hasn’t provided any details on when exactly this new version could land.
According to people associated with the matter, the company is considering a July launch, and new details provided on a Microsoft website now seem to confirm that this is indeed very likely.
WinBeta, a site covering Windows and Microsoft news, spotted a Windows Roadmap indicating the software giant’s plan to introduce some big changes to Cortana (which are likely to be introduced with the Anniversary Update), and all these improvements are projected to debut in July.
“Cortana is also the best digital assistant at reminders, letting you set them in more ways including by pen, and [coming in July 2016] pulling reminder-relevant info from emails so you have the details at hand. And you can instantly capture your ideas by voice just by telling Cortana to take a note,” the roadmap page reads (emphasis is ours).
Even though Microsoft hasn’t spoken a word about Anniversary update date release, July actually makes sense given the fact that Windows 10 turns one during the month. Also, the free upgrade promo ends on 29th July, so releasing an update that brings new features is the best way to convince more people to install Windows 10 at the very last minute.
It should be noted that deadlines are missed sometimes, and in the case of Microsoft, they have hardly met any. Still, we can hope our PC’s and mobile’s getting the update with the rapid pace of insider’s build releasing every two weeks.
