Windows 10 Fall Creators Update lands October 17th, Microsoft confirms

Lenovo Explorer Boldly Goes Into the World of Mixed Reality

The next major feature update to Windows 10 will begin rolling out from October 17. Back at Build 2017 - Microsoft's annual conference - the company confirmed the second-half 2017 update will be called the Fall Creators Update, and it includes a focus on bringing Windows Mixed Reality to the fore, plus cross-platform Windows experiences to iOS and Android devices. The final Windows 10 Fall Creators update is now being tested by insiders and the final build will also be run by the Windows insiders. And for us, those experiences begin with Windows 10, the most-popular version of Windows on the planet, with over 500 million devices in homes, businesses, and schools helping you create and play.

You can save all of your creations in OneDrive Files On-Demand, accessing your cloud files like any of your other files on your PC, without using up your local storage space.

Aside from gaming and Mixed Reality, there are plenty of improvements for those that just want to get things done. Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year. The update will allow PC gamers to set the computer to max out the processor for smoother gameplay, and there'll be a bunch of new games as well.

Victoria's Secret show is coming to Asia for the first time
The sisters will be walking the runway for VS together for the second time (though Gigi walked in the 2015 show, too). The shows have been held in London, Paris, and NY in the previous years.

Photos and Videos: The Photos application has been redesigned, and you may tell "stories with photos, videos, music, 3D and even inking" using it. But unlike Microsoft's expensive Hololens, the Explorer-and other Windows Mixed Reality devices-aren't self-contained and must be tethered to a compatible Windows 10 device in order to function. The headsets will start at $299.

You'll likely notice the new My People feature when you install the update, as it allows you to select your three best friends and add them as icons in the taskbar for quick and easy contact - though the Insider Preview version limits you to using Skype or Mail alone.

Engadget is reporting that HP, Lenovo and Dell will each have their own VR headsets rolling out for the Mixed Reality platform, priced between $350 and $450.
