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

12 May, 2017, 01:22 | Author: Jacqueline Ellis

Windows 10 Build 16193 is also from development branch and nearly all of the features released with this build will be available on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

As expected, Microsoft has announced a new September 2017 update for Windows 10, but bizarrely it has called it a very familiar name.

New features of the codenamed Redstone 3 update include user interface change part of what Microsoft calls Fluent Design System and Timeline functions as well as OneDrive Files On-Demand. This is no longer necessary, as the files in their updated format will be available whenever the user clicks them.

The Windows 10 SDK Preview Build introduce the following new controls: NavigationView, TreeView, RatingsControl, ColorPicker, ParallaxView and PersonPicture to the Windows.UI.XAML.Controls namespace. The Creators Update contains developer-only support for a new range of cheap virtual reality headsets, and in the Fall Creators Update, that support will be opened up to everyone.

The Microsoft Fluent Design System will deliver a better cross-device experience, making jumping from platform to platform, or device to device, much easier. The particularly-interesting bit is the ability to transfer an open task from a desktop PC to a laptop or another mobile device (iOS and Android included), using the accompanying Pick Up Where You Left Off feature. With Clipboard, you can take a photo, map link, paragraph, even an animated GIF and then paste it on the other device-whether it be a phone or your PC. With a visual timeline that displays what you were doing when, you can easily hop back into files, apps and sites as if you never left. And that's huge. And not just because it enables exploding soccer balls.

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

The Microsoft Graph is an intelligent fabric that helps connect dots between people, conversations, projects and content within the Microsoft Cloud ensuring experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS and Android devices. Users can also create mixed reality by adding 3-D objects to photos and videos to tell stories in a whole new way, or turn photos and videos into a canvas, drawing on them with Windows Ink.

Besides implementing the new features in Windows, the company will encourage other software developers to incorporate the design into their applications.

Windows will also start to look a little fresher. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side. ISOs were offered for the PC build, which are actually the first images of a Fall Creators Update preview.

We were also told that HP ($329) and Acer ($299) will both open up pre-orders for their Mixed Reality HMDs through the Microsoft Store for developers in the USA and Canada. There is no need to install hardware on the walls around you.
