Microsoft aims to create a more versatile Windows 10

The Windows 10 Fall (Spring down under) Creators Update makes it easier for experiences to flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS, and Android devices.

MICROSOFT HAS ANNOUNCED the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which brings with it a major design overhaul and updates to Windows Timeline and Microsoft Graph.

Microsoft announced the news in Redmond, Wash. during its annual Build conference for developers.

Microsoft is also opening up Windows 10 so it works better with smartphones and tablets running on Apple's iOS and Google's Android software.

Microsoft Executive Vice President Terry Myerson acknowledged that locking people into the Windows platform is not today's reality, emphasizing that Microsoft recognizes the growing device and platform world on which applications can run. Users will be able to create stories with a soundtrack, theme and cinematic transitions.

Microsoft will be including a new app called Story Remix, a new video editing tool.

Judge orders Uber not to use technology taken from Waymo
While Alsup's order is the third blow to Uber in the week, it is by far the lightest. Uber must return the documents either to Waymo or the court by the end of this month.

Windows 10 on ARM translates all the x86 instructions to ARM64 at runtime so as the user gets the exact same experience regardless of what their base hardware is.

Perhaps the most prominent change for the average user will be the launch of the Microsoft Fluent Design System, previously known as Project Neon. Microsoft also announced its own set of motion controllers that works with the sensors built-in and within the headset, so you don't need to install cameras around your room like in HTC Vive. While it may not sound like an important addition to the Windows Store on the face of it, consider the fact that iTunes is one of the most frequently searched apps on the Windows Store, where it has never been listed.

Microsoft said Thursday that Apple's popular iTunes music app would be made available to people through the Windows Store by the end of the year.

Another question is timing: Microsoft said that iTunes would arrive in the Store "later this year", but hopefully that doesn't mean "late this year", as in "after the release of the Fall Creators Update". Windows 10 S, can only get apps through the store, not directly from third parties such as Apple. Acer's going to bundle both devices together at $399 and sell it this holiday season. Whichever camp you're in, here's a quick take on the top new features that will show up in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

That is far less than the $3,000 (£2,300) to $5,000 (£3,900) Microsoft has been charging for another mixed reality headset called HoloLens.
