Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella teased a major Windows update at the recent Build conference, but we only learned the broad strokes of the update. We can finally tell when that Microsoft will introduce the next generation of Windows on June 24th.
According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, the next version of Windows OS will “create more opportunity for everyone in the Windows developer community today, and it will open the door to everyone who wants to build innovative, new, open platforms to distribute and monetize their apps.” This is most likely referring to the rumoured Windows Store revamp, which will allow more app developers to use the store as a distribution mechanism. According to sources, the Store will be friendlier to developers by allowing more file formats and third-party payment systems.
The new Windows will be unveiled at 11 a.m. on June 24th in the Eastern Time Zone. The new software is said to be called “Sun Valley.” According to the latest reports, it will have a more rounded corner as well as a more modern-looking design. Microsoft’s redesign, which began rolling out in Windows 10 from the beginning, has already shown a small amount of this in the revamped system icons.
It contains no useful information because it is nothing more than a Windows icon on a blue background. However, because the new logo lacks the same distinct shape, we may see it on the start button in the future.
Microsoft has publicly failed because it attempted to push its operating system strategies further. For example, Windows 10X was originally intended to be a dual-screen version of Windows, but Microsoft has since determined that single-screen computers are the operating system’s primary target market. Microsoft announced earlier this month that Windows 10X is no longer available, and that a number of its features will be included in an upcoming Windows 10 update. Microsoft previously attempted to make Windows 10 for phones a reality, but that experiment ended in 2014. Microsoft is rumoured to be producing Android phones at this time. However, there hasn’t been much talk about the Duo since its release last year.
When Windows 10 was released in 2015, it was made available as a free upgrade for the first year for many customers, but for others, it was made available as a paid upgrade for a significantly longer period of time.
Former CEO Steve Ballmer handed over control of the company to current CEO Satya Nadella, signalling a significant shift in leadership. Windows 10 has even been referred to as “the final” version of Windows. Although Microsoft could treat the next update as a separate version, we don’t know if they will. It could be Windows 11, or Windows will drop the number entirely. Regardless of what its plans are, Microsoft has done a good job of keeping things under wraps.
