Windows Redstone 2 Insider Preview will be released this week. The next Windows 10 Update might be Surface Pro 5 OS. Microsoft has announced that it will release the Insider Preview builds. These builds will be released for PC first. While the builds for mobile devices will be rolled out a few weeks later. However, the company has not announced any exact dates as yet.
Recently, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) to its customers. Now, the company is set to release new builds from their Development Branch to Windows Insiders. The Insiders have been reminded to check their ring settings as the new update will be released in the Fast ring. The Windows 10 Redstone 2 release is expected to be released this week itself.
The new release is not expected to bring any noticeable changes or new features. The major update focuses on making the OneCore optimal. The OneCore is the shared core across all Windows-powered devices – PC, phones, tablets, Xbox and the Hololens. With the new update, Microsoft is doing code refactoring and other engineering work. Hence, no visible new features will be seen, except optimization.
In fact, the new update might contain some bugs too. So, Insiders who really want to stay with the latest Windows OS should take the take the risk. Those who want to stay safe can skip the new update. If the Anniversary update is performing well for you, there is no need to install the new Insider Preview builds.
Since Microsoft is now releasing the buggy version of Redstone 2 for Windows Insiders to test the effectiveness of the new product, the Redstone 2 release will be released sometime next year. However, there is no actual date as yet. According to ZDNet, the next major update for the OS will be released for masses in March 2017.
