Microsoft will roll out the next major update to Windows 10 on April 11, according to new reports.
The usually reliable MSPoweruser tech site, cites three sources who it claims are “close to Microsoft’s plans” and have insider info on the official release date of the Windows 10 Creators Update
According to the report, Microsoft will sign off the update later this month before officially announcing it in early April, prior to its roll out from April 11.
The update, codename Redstone 2, has been rumoured to be released in April for some time, but this is the first time an exact release date has been reported.
The Windows 10 Creators Update is the first of two major updates Microsoft has planned for the latest version of its operating system in 2017.
Currently being tested by users on its ‘Insider’ program, the update is set to bring a host of improvements and new features, including new 3D creation tools which will see Paint be completely overhauled.
There is also a new Game Mode that will boost PC performance while gaming and better support for virtual reality.
Microsoft has also announced the update will give users greater control regarding automatic updates and that it will start to push out updates as differential downloads, which should save users both time and space when installing the new updates.
However, all these new features could come at a cost, with previous reports suggesting the Windows 10 Creators Update could include more advertising than any other version of Windows.
Microsoft is also rumoured to be working on ‘Redstone 3’, the second of the major updates for Windows 10, which is expected to be ready no later than October this year.
