Microsoft has been teasing the ‘next generation of Windows’ for months. But, now the company has announced on Wednesday that it will unveil the ‘next generation of Windows’ at a virtual event on June 24. The event will be held online at 11 am ET.
CEO Nadella will be present at the event along with Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, who has been the face of the company’s Surface devices.
The move comes after CEO Satya Nadella revealed major enhancements to the PC operating system for developers and creators as well. On May 25, CEO Satya Nadella said, “Microsoft is planning one of the most significant updates of Windows of the past decade.”
Recently, Microsoft has just rolled out the latest version of the Windows 10 Operating System, also known as VERSION 21H1.
There are rumors that this major redesign might be called Windows 11. Here are details about the next major Windows 10 update, including new features and whether it will be called Windows 11.
Microsoft is working on an update to Windows with the code name Sun Valley which could bring a redesigned Start Menu, action center, file explorer and Taskbar. These will include a modern look and new features.
The company on the May 18 had said “instead of bringing a product called Windows 10X to market in 2021 like we originally intended, we are leveraging learnings from our journey this far and accelerating the integration of ey foundational 10X technology into other parts of Windows and products at the company.”
This means that some of the feature updates might be used on the same experience found in Windows 10X but customized for desktop.
Will the update be called Windows 11
Microsoft had released Windows 10 in 2015 and made it clear that this would be ‘the last version of Windows'. So, it is unlikely that the new update would be called Windows 11. However, some people are still speculating that Windows 11 may happen.
