Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Released

18 October 2017, 12:46 | Dawn Berry

First batch of Windows Mixed Reality apps and games hits the Store

First look at Windows Mixed Reality Devices – Unboxing for Business

"The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can be experienced on a wide variety of Windows 10 PCs and on a range of Windows Mixed Reality headsets available for the first time today".

Microsoft is starting to push out the free Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Finally integrated is the long-promised desktop chat integration for contacts from LinkedIn and Skype, as well as a new Android and iPhone linking feature.

AR, or Augmented Reality, is also receiving a lot of love.

Microsoft has created the Windows 10 ISO files page so that folks who don't have a Windows device, and therefore can't use the Media Creation Tool, can still get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update ISO files. Launching in parallel is a host of cheap AR headsets, courtesy of collaboration between Microsoft and several major tech companies.

New iPhone X Wallpaper Shown In Video
This isn't the first time we've seen pictures of the iPhone X being used in public now that the phone isn't a secret anymore. Obviously we all know what an iPhone X looks like but this video is most interesting because of the iPhone X wallpaper shown.

The latest update delivers security improvements by taking ransomware head on in the Windows Defender Security Center. You can use the ISOs to clean install or upgrade your PC to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and it's a pretty straightforward way of installing Windows if you are familiar with the process. "While Windows 7 still has a almost 50% share on the desktop market at the time of this writing, Microsoft is known for introducing a number of structural security improvements and sometimes even ordinary bugfixes only to the most recent Windows platform".

Going forward, Microsoft will also stop putting its focus on building new features and hardware for its Windows 10 Mobile operating system, according to Belfiore, a corporate vice president in the company's Operating Systems Group.

If Fall Creators Update is installed, your Version number will be 1709 and your Build number will be 16299.19 as shown below. That's a bummer, but you can easily avoid that.

Experiencing mixed reality with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update doesn't necessarily require a new headset. The 32-year old software program that has come standard in most Windows desktop and notebook machines was reported to be eliminated by Microsoft. If the last two Windows 10 editions are any hint, it might take over 6 months for some users to receive this latest version of Windows 10.
