Microsoft released the anniversary Update of Windows 10 on August 2nd. All around the world there were different activities to mark it’s arrival. From Windows Insider meetings to developer hackathons. Microsoft Team in South Africa held a cocktail party style with some Tech Media invited guests. Something similar to the bloggers meetup held by Microsoft Nigeria.

Here are some of the things shared from the event about the Anniversary Update;

  • The future of Windows10 is all about the unification of Microsoft services and devices. A single Operating system, User Interface and Store.
  • More personal and more secured.
  • Microsoft is building a better operating system using your feedback via the Windows Insiders program.
  • Over 5000 tweaks were made to improve Windows 10 via feedback from the Windows Insiders program.
  • Windows 10 users can upgrade from Windows10 Home to the Pro version via the Windows store.
