The IFA 2017 event is still going on in Berlin, and it’s not only smartphones that are being launched there. Microsoft, not to be left out of the glamour of the event, has announced that it will start rolling out the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to qualified devices on the 17th of October.
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update was announced earlier in the year at the Build 2017 event which was held in May, but no one knew then when the update would be available to computers running Windows 10 as such updates take time before they see the light of day. Microsoft has now used the platform of the IFA 2017 event to clear our doubts and set an anticipation for the update in the minds of its consumers.
The company also said that it will release the all-new Windows Mixed Reality headsets on the same date after the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has started rolling out to devices, as computers need some components provided by the update on them to be able to use the Windows MR Headsets.
As usual, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update brings massive updates like Cloud Clipboard which will help you in transferring content seamlessly between different software platforms like Windows, iOS and Android.
The update will also bring the world’s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers that do not require markers. There’s also something in it for those suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
