New Windows update to unleash a wave of creativity

New Windows update to unleash a wave of creativity

Named Build1703, the update is an attempt to provide steady and useful updates with the Microsoft OS.

A comparison of the WinRT APIs between Windows 10 build 16188 (pre fall creators update) and Build 16193 (post fall Creators Update) shows that Microsoft added a large number of APIs to deal with cellular data connectivity, but specifically removed APIs dealing with phone calls, such as call blocking, voice mail, phone line, phone call origin and many more.

The tools are the latest sign of Microsoft's aim to try to reach users regardless of what other operating systems they use, a far cry from a few years ago when the company at this same conference was advertising Windows 10 as the operating system that unified smartphone and laptop and made other operating systems unnecessary.

Fluent Design was definitely one of the biggest announcements for developers at BUILD 2017.

The Microsoft Graph is an intelligent fabric that helps connect dots between people, conversations, projects, and content within the Microsoft Cloud - ensuring experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS, and Android devices. Windows app has already offered support for iTunes store and Apple Music. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side.

"We designed Windows 10 to empower the creator in all of us", said Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Windows Devices Group, Microsoft.

In addition, many organizations and businesses are likely just starting to look at this third major feature update for Windows 10 and evaluating it as part of their own pilot to prepare for its eventual deployment for their users. During the holiday shopping season, Acer also plans to sell a $399 bundle that includes a Windows Mixed Reality Headset and motion controllers from Microsoft.

Also present was the Windows Timeline, a feature that returns the system to a specific state when certain apps were running is also linked to a pick up from where you left off option, which once again supports iPhones too.
