Microsoft announces Redstone 3’s official name “Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” at Build 2017

During the Day 2 keynote presentation at Build 2017, Microsoft formally announced the official name given to the next major Windows 10 update which will be called the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

“Today, at Build 2017 we announced the next wave of Windows 10 innovations built to empower the creator in all of us–the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update,” Microsoft’s Terry Myerson said. “Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices.”

This future update had until now been codenamed Redstone 3 in much the same way that the recent Windows 10 Creators Update was referred to as Redstone 2 before being given its official title and the Anniversary Update was named Redstone before getting its final name. While no specific date was given for the rollout of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, it’s probably safe to assume that it will begin sometime in the fall.
