Windows 10 Creators Update Dropping on April 11

Microsoft has been very open about the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company announced the feature update last year and has revealed virtually all of its features through previews. However, Microsoft has been coy on exactly when the Creators Update will launch. According to MSPU, the update will start rolling out on April 11.
At launch and over the proceeding months, Microsoft has been vague about specific dates. Indeed, all the company has done is promise a spring 2017 launch for the Windows 10 Creators Update.
MSPU says it has three separate sources who say Microsoft will start the roll out on April 11. Of course, despite Microsoft's silence on specific dates, we have known for some time that the Creators Update would drop in April.
Dell confirmed at CES in January that the update would drop next months. However, MSPU has now added a more concrete date.
An April launch has seemed likely since Microsoft announced its Build 2017 conference will kick off May 10. By time Build gets underway, the company would surely want the Creators Update roll out to be in progress.
Build 2017 will be used to talk about future builds, most like Redstone 3.

End of Creators Update Previews

Microsoft is currently winding down towards the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company has been previewing the build for months through the Windows Insider Program. Now those preview builds are coming to an end.
This is evidenced by a reduction in new features shipping with builds. Microsoft will sign-off on the Creators Update sometime during this month. The final release will come shortly after.
The company is already well into development of Redstone 3. The next feature update is expected to arrive later in the year and could be fully announced at Build. One of the key new additions of Redstone 3 will be Project Neon, which is a UI overhaul for Windows 10.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

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…
