Microsoft releases Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Microsoft releases Windows 10 Anniversary Update

As promised before on August 2 Microsoft launched the Windows 10 Anniversary update, which marked one year since the release of Windows 10. The new update comes with a large number of new features and is the first major update for Windows 10 based on the new service-based Windows model, which copies the OS X model Apple has been using for years. The new Windows 10 Anniversary Update also marks the end of the Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer. Now Windows 10 costs USD 199, but there are still other ways to get it for free from Microsoft’s web site.

The new update comes with the internal version 1607 with build 14393. The update is several gigabytes so make sure you have enough time and disk space to download it and then install it. The update process is somewhat long since it effectively changes your current Windows 10 installation in great depth. Feature-wise the new update adds new features to Windows Ink and Cortana can now be accessed right from the lock screen. In addition it has been integrated with even more applications. Windows Hello has also been integrated in many more applications and services such as Dropbox. There are also improvements in Windows Defender and various tweaks in the OS core that increase performance and the energy efficiency for mobile devices that Windows 10 has been offering.

The new update is free and you can get it at Microsoft’s web site.
