First major Windows 10 update coming in early August

Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system may still be rolling out to users but the company is already working on more significant future updates with one possibly coming in early August according to a report by The Verge.

If their sources are to be believed, the first major update to Windows 10 (there have already been several minor patches released since its launch) will be called, Service Release 1 (SR1) and will fix several unspecified problems that have been affecting users. While no details are given on what will be fixed, it’s safe to assume that the usual system stability upgrades will be included.

Of more interest are the hints at several new features that will apparently begin rolling out in the coming months to Windows Insiders before being released to the average Windows 10 users. These features include plugin-ins for Microsoft’s new Edge browser that are built on similar APIs to those made for the Chrome browser, the new messaging app that will incorporate Skype, and improved battery life for Windows 10 devices.
