The Microsoft Windows 10 is quite old operating system version now and next we might have Windows 11 or Windows X or Windows 12 or atleast Windows 10.1 update. Check Windows 10.1 or Windows X or Windows 11 release date, features to expect.
What is the Latest Windows Version
Windows 10 version 1709 or Fall Creators update is the latest Windows version right now.
As of April 30, 2018, the latest Windows 10 build happens to be 10.0.15254.369 [Read More].
What is the Next Windows Version?
Back in 2015, it was rumored that Microsoft is already working on Windows 10.1 update. It will be named as Windows 10.1 "Redstone". But since then there is no news about. Infact that Windows name is already received in the recent Windows 10 updates.
So, is Microsoft still working on 10.1 update? They might be, if not in future, they will.
Now coming to the naming convention, it's still not known whether it will be Windows 10.1 or Windows 10.5 or Windows X version or completely Windows 11 update.
Windows 10.1 Release Date
From the recent updates, it looks like that the next Windows version will be Windows 10.1. Atleast the way the recent operating system development is going on, the 10.1 is highly likely to be the next major update. That update will arrive after several minor updates.
Here are the recently released versions of Microsoft's desktop OS:
Windows 10.1 Features
As of now, it's pretty hard to say what Windows 10.1 will include in features but as a Windows users, I would like to see advanced security features to be added.
The next Windows update could see Face unlock or atleast fingerprint feature been added by default. This will help Microsoft from classifying the Windows laptops with MacBooks and other devices.
Further, I believe that Windows 10.1 update will be purely for desktops and laptops as Microsoft's Joe Belfiore admitted that the company is no longer developing Windows 10 Mobile. To put that in simple words, Windows 10 Mobile is officially dead.
Cortana for Windows should get a face-lift. I don't like this feature because it needs several features to be added like Call to Wake up Cortana directly.
Further, the company should remove Groove Music and keep Windows Media Player as the default audio and video player. I mean why you want two music players, instead improve the existing one.
Windows 11 Release Date
The release date of Windows 11 depends on cases. If there is a Windows 10.1 update then the 11 update will be pushed further. There are no perfect dates estimated but 2020 could be the right time to launch a new version.
The above-mentioned features, if not available in Windows 10.1 update, will be rolled-out in Windows 2020 version.
So, what do you think of next Windows version? Will it be Windows 10.1 or Windows 11 or Windows X?
