Microsoft has released possibly its last major download for this version of Windows 10
Microsoft has revealed its latest Windows 10 upgrade.
The company is hard at work on the Windows 10 Creators Update, which is scheduled for release next month, promising a host of improvements and upgrades.
But with this launch on the horizon, Microsoft has also kept to its regular schedule of releasing a new Windows 10 update – here’s what has been revealed.
The new upgrade brings several improvements to the top build of Microsoft’s software – the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
Most useful are a number of stability fixes and performance upgrades, with Microsoft patching a number of compatibility issues, including one which was causing the company’s Windows DVD Player to crash.
However, as noted by Neowin, the release does not include any updates for Windows 10 Mobile, meaning that the major security flaw affecting photos on a phone, revealed last month, is still exposed.
The new download is available in the Windows Update service from today, meaning users should be able to install on their devices now.
Microsoft is now close to releasing the next major upgrade to Windows 10
Microsoft has not included any new operating system features in the update, suggesting that the company is now focusing its attentions on Windows 10 Creators Update.
The new release is thought to be nearing release within the next few weeks, however some lucky users may be able to get their hands on the release now.
The update is expected to be offered as a free download, much like past Windows 10 upgrades, but will most likely be several gigabytes in size.

Windows 10 could soon be coming to smart home products
Windows 10 Creators Update is the company’s biggest upgrade for some time, following the previous Anniversary Update, released last year.
The upgrade will bring a number of media-friendly additions to the software, including major improvements to 3D modelling, virtual reality support, gaming, and social media.
However it’s not all good news, as reports have claimed that Windows 10 Creators Update will include more adverts than previous editions as Microsoft looks to make the most of its new product.
The new release will also reportedly bring back unstoppable automatic updates in its latest software.
This means that updates could be pushed out even when a computer is using metered internet access, meaning users could end up being charged for data they had never planned on using.
