As part its commitment to evolve the experiences and features with more functionality coming to Windows, Microsoft made it official today at the IFA, Berlin, that the next Windows 10 feature update codenamed “Redstone 5,” will now be known as the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
It’s not a surprise, because Microsoft had earlier said that there would be the “twice-yearly Windows 10 feature updates” releasing in the spring and in the fall of each year.
This specific build designated as the October 2018 Update will bring new features and enhancements to nearly ‘700 million’ Windows 10 devices starting in October 2018.
“We’re excited to bring even more experiences and innovation to our customers with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update,” said Microsoft official.
This update is expected to be finalized in the coming weeks. It’s when Microsoft will be sharing more details about the upcoming features.
The new feature such as Cloud Clipboard, dark-mode File Explorer option, the number of new Notepad features, other tweaks and updates will be part of this release.
Also, a number of new security and enterprise features, as well as a new Windows 10 Enterprise Remote Sessions edition will be released, too.
Also, the company will be rolling out server complements to the October 2018 Update a.k.a Windows Server 1809 and Windows Server 2019 on the same day in October as the client build goes live.
The next Windows 10 feature update is currently known as “19H1,” and is in the early testing phase now.
Microsoft didn’t specify the exact day on which the October 2018 Update will start rolling out.
