Microsoft needs your iPhone as part of its new mobile strategy

Kayla Schwartz | 12 May, 2017, 22:20

Big news for Microsoft fans! Again, expect these changes this year, in fall, during the release of the Fall creators update.

The features, which will be part of an upgrade for the computer operating system this fall, will let people sync different devices, Microsoft officials said in a briefing before they introduced the software.

Myerson also showed off Microsoft Fluent Design System, its name for a new design language that will tweak the look of Windows 10. For example, app icons or calendar appoints may appear to pop out from the screen depending on what you're doing.

I recently talked about the reason that I'm "loyal" to Apple, insofar that I'm most comfortable using iOS and there are some features that I just don't want to give up (Control Center) by switching to another platform. The app also supports 3D models and lets you pin objects in scenes. The tool is similar to what Apple already offers with Universal Clipboard in iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.

Much like the original Creators Update, the focus will be on improving an individual's ability to be creative using photos, video, sound and effects, with a special emphasis this time on 3-D and mixed reality.

Van seen leaving the area. "Definitely unusual, definitely creepy, definitely something that concerns us a great deal", said Lt. The male is described as a light skinned black male between the ages of 20 to 30 with hazel eyes.

More importantly, Kipman announced at the event that the mixed reality headsets will come with new motion controllers - giving users a much more intuitive way of navigating around mixed reality. If you were impacted by this on Build 16188, that means you won't be able to open Windows Update to check for updates. They'll be sold as a $399 bundle with Acer Windows VR headsets later this year. That said, early previews have stated that Neon is aiming for a simple aesthetic, so we'll see how Microsoft achieves that balance with new animations in the mix.

Microsoft is upgrading its cross-platform foundation, for code through its forthcoming.NET Standard 2.0 UWP, and for interfaces, via the XAML Standard 1.0, also coming later this year.

Now, Windows will engage with its competitors and look for ways to make customers' experience with those devices better, the Redmond, Wash. -based company said. The company showed how Cortana could pull up events and reminders in the vehicle. If users receive a text message while driving, for example, Cortana might suggest that she remind them about it when they arrive at their destination.

Today Microsoft released Insider Preview Build 16193 for PC and Insider Preview Build 15213 for Mobile to insiders on the fast ring.

On that note, expect to hear a lot more about how far the Amazon Alexa-like Cortana Skills and device software developer kits have come since their announcement previous year. The software is created to connect Android, iOS, and UWP apps to the Microsoft Graph. He says tools like React Native allow developers to write native mobile apps using JavaScript that can also be turned into web apps.
