Microsoft said Wednesday it will divulge “the next generation of Windows” on June 24. The move comes a week after CEO Satya Nadella prodded significant improvements to the PC operating system for developers as well as makers.
Windows, the dominant operating system for personal computers, is the source of 14% of total revenue for Microsoft, one of the most significant organizations in the world. The organization has pushed two updates every year to its Windows 10 operating system since it first became available in 2015.
Nadella made the Windows comments a week ago not long after the organization reported that it will not transport Windows 10X. That operating system was at first intended for dual-screen gadgets, for example, the Surface Neo, which has been postponed.
The organization at that point sharpened its focus on single-screen PCs, for example, laptops for Windows 10X prior to saying on May 18 that “instead of bringing a product called Windows 10X to market in 2021 like we originally intended, we are leveraging learnings from our journey thus far and accelerating the integration of key foundational 10X technology into other parts of Windows and products at the company.”
Microsoft reported the most recent Windows 10 update a month ago with just slight changes.
The organization is working on an update to Windows with the code name Sun Valley, that incorporates a more modern look, with rounded corners coming to components like the Start menu, technology news website Windows Central detailed in February. The site likewise said Microsoft could ship a revamp of its Windows application store, which would permit designers to use third-party commerce systems, close by the Sun Valley update.
The event will be held online at 11 a.m. ET, as indicated by an invitation the organization shipped off reporters. Nadella will be there, alongside Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, who has been the face of the organization’s Surface gadgets, the invitation said.
