Windows 10 update appeals to iPhone users and makes video editing easier

What is the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update? Sure, Microsoft had to pester and annoy many people to upgrade, but now there are that many more users who will get the newly announced Fall Creators Update. It turns out that the company is going to carry over the name that it used for the first major Windows 10 update it released this year. Several new features will be introduced with this update.

Also making news at Build 2017 is the fact that OpenSUSE, Ubuntu and Fedora are coming to the Windows Store.

At Day 2 of Microsoft's Build 2017 conference in Seattle, the company revealed the creative tools that would be part of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft has unveiled the "Fluent Design System", a new design system which will shape the look and feel of Microsoft software moving forward. "Coupled with Office 365, Windows Timeline, Fluent Design System, and Microsoft's powerful Bot Framework, Windows 10's upcoming Fall Creators Update will enable developers to create richly immersive experiences and powerfully task-focused distributed collaborations".

The personal assistant Cortana will also understand what you're working on across different machines, whether it's a phone or your computer.

It's also worth noting that Files On-Demand will let you open files in OneDrive from within desktop or universal apps.

This one is cheating a little, but there were three smaller announcements on stage today that deserve plenty of attention: OneDrive Files On-Demand, Timeline, and a cloud-based clipboard. OneDrive Offline Folders lets you save entire folders to your mobile device in order to open them when offline.

Windows Story Remix uses AI and deep learning to organize and transform photos and videos into stories.

When it removed the feature, Microsoft claimed it had received feedback that it was confusing and misunderstood by users. Anyone can get started creating great videos with the help of Story Remix.

When can I try the new features?

As with other Windows 10 updates, this update will be free for existing Windows 10 users.

The idea, Belfiore said, is to rethink the Windows interface so it relies less on a mouse and keyboard - smoothing the way forward for alternative input methods, like the finger-gesture controls of the Microsoft HoloLens headset, or digital pen styluses. Microsoft also announced it is working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux - to bring them to the Windows Store. Both those companies have helped undercut the popularity of PCs running on Windows.

The Fall Creators Update will start hitting PCs later this year. Due to wide interest from the community, developers in the US and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299 USD) or HP ($329 USD) Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer.
