It was only a few months back that Microsoft formally announced Windows 10. Since then the company has been running a public preview program. It plans on releasing Windows 10 for consumers during the summer. Despite the fact that the consumer launch has not happened yet there are already whispers about the next major update for Windows 10. According to a new report the next major update for Windows 10 is codenamed “Redstone” and it will be released in 2016.
Microsoft is going to release Windows 10, previously known by its codename “Threshold,” this summer. As per the report a minor update will be released for Threshold this fall. It won’t add any new features to the system but will bring fixes and improvements.
Major new functionality will reportedly be introduced by Redstone. That’s believed to be the codename for Windows 10’s first major update and it may be released early next year.
The report does point out that Redstone won’t be Windows 11 or Windows 10. It won’t be a completely new iteration of Windows instead it will just bring major updates for the iteration that we’re looking forward to this summer.
It’s too soon to say right now what new functionality Redstone might bring to Windows 10. The possibility exists that we’ll get to hear about the expected features as 2016 draws near.
