- Microsoft announced Wednesday that it will make the long-anticipated Windows 10 Anniversary Update available to the general public Aug. 2.
- The Anniversary Update includes a large number of new tools, including advancements to Windows Ink and the Ink Workspace, along with APIs that allow apps to better utilize the inking tools.
- Anniversary Update also includes biometric features to improve security when signing into apps and websites.
Cortana can also now be enhanced through apps and bots, said Microsoft.
Earlier this week, Microsoft said it will curtail some of its insistent efforts to get customers to upgrade to Windows 10 after it received numerous complaints that its tactics are too aggressive, such as pushing upgrades on customers without their permission.
The Windows 10 Anniversary Update contains so many features, however, even Win10 holdouts may want to reconsider.
