Named Build1703, the update is an attempt to provide steady and useful updates with the Microsoft OS.

The Windows 10 Creators Update, which was shipped in April, is slowly rolling out to consumers via Windows Update. There will be a Story Remix app for Android, iOS and Windows, allowing users to sync their photos and video from various devices for seamless editing.

Also in the works is the Microsoft Fluent Design system, aimed at helping developers create applications that work well across a range of devices and input types.

The Microsoft Graph is an intelligent fabric that helps connect dots between people, conversations, projects, and content within the Microsoft Cloud - ensuring experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS, and Android devices. We have already seen a Microsoft apps and few other apps on the store getting the Fluent Design.

Microsoft revealed today at its Build Developers Conference that Windows Store will have Apple iTunes by the end of 2017.

Like the name says, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be available in fall, although Microsoft has not given a specific date yet. With this compatibility, users will be at ease to use the apps on both platforms.

The Fall Creators Update - a similar marketing moniker to a spring edition released in April - will come with Timeline, a feature created to let you jump back into files you were using a few hours or days ago as if you'd never left. Based on reports, the Timeline is the user's way to go backwards in time and view the things they were working on during the past and continue what they were doing. Due to wide interest from the community, developers in the U.S. and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299) or HP ($329) Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer, the statement said.

Acer will sell a Windows Mixed Reality headset and motion controller bundle priced at $399. To back them up, Microsoft has also announced some new features for Timeline and Cortana.
