Major Windows 10 Feature Update Expected To Arrive This June

Major Windows 10 Feature Update Expected To Arrive This June:


Microsoft is expected to launch a major feature upgrade for Windows 10 this June. Codenamed “Redstone,” the update is said to add several new features to the operating system aside from focusing on the convergence of different Windows 10-powered devices like PC, Xbox and smartphones. The new report also mentions that the second major feature update for Windows 10 has been delayed.


The second major feature update, codenamed “Redstone 2,” has reportedly been delayed from fall 2016 to spring 2017. It will include some features that didn’t make the cut in Redstone as well as additional improvements and features.

The first Redstone update is said to “heavily concentrate” on the Universal App Platform by bringing the Windows Store to Xbox One and adding more apps to the Store ported from other platforms. A bigger focus on universal AAA games between Xbox and PC will be seen as well, Microsoft has already set the wheels in motion for that.

Not much is known about what we can expect with Redstone 2. If any of the features expected with Redstone don’t arrive with the first update then it’s likely they’ll come with the second next year. Redstone 2 may also focus heavily on first-party apps.

Obviously, none of this has officially been confirmed by Microsoft as yet. Windows 10 will be due for a major feature update by this summer so it’s quite likely that we might see the company announce such an update in the coming months.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
The end of HomeGroup

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all users to Office 365 at some point later this year. Office 365 brings other services as well which include Outlook Web Access. The question that surely must be on everyone’s mind is that why is Microsoft doing this? According to The Verge the reason behind this migration is to make sure that Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 platforms are perfectly aligned. In favor of keeping things consistent Microsoft is going to go ahead and add the consumer to the mix as well. There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for, Microsoft’s general manager of Office Apps Rob Lefferts suspected that much. It’s worth nothing that Microsoft hasn’t updated its consumer email service for quite a few months and it even showed the door to G…
