The next Windows 10 update will be the Fall Creators Update and it's coming on 17 October.

In addition, Microsoft said the first Windows Mixed Reality headsets will start to become available when the Fall Creators Update is released.

In a blog post, Terry Myerson, Executive VP of the Windows and Devices Group, discussed all of the ways that the Fall Creators Update will improve Windows 10.

"We are working with an incredible set of partners to bring the most immersive experiences to the Windows Store", Klipman said. This feature will be available on any piece of hardware that supports it, and was developed specifically to make Windows more accessible to those with Lou Gehrig's disease.

The internal resolution will be 1440×1440 per eye, easily beating the resolution of PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, but the system requirements will also be noticeably lower, with Microsoft supporting Intel HD Graphics 620 that can be found in the latest "Kaby Lake" processors.

The news broke yesterday ahead of time after Lenovo accidentally included the release date in a press release issued for IFA 2017, a consumer electronics trade show held in Berlin. And we can't forget that the Fall Creators Update will unlock the power of the Windows Mixed Reality platform. The update will also mark the debut of the new Windows Fluent Design System, which aims to upgrade the look and feel of the OS and apps.

OneDrive Files On-Demand brings back a new and improved version of the Placeholder feature that was introduced with Windows 8.1.

What is the Fall Creators Update? Placeholder allows you to visually see all of the files that resided "in the cloud" but only synced files to your desktop as they were needed. Microsoft has released many such updates, including three major ones: November Update, Anniversary Update, and Creators Update. The Timeline feature is similar to Apple's Handoff, which allows users to continue their work across a variety of devices. As we are already aware OEM's are expected to pull the wraps from their headsets on October 17 while the others will follow suit.

Acer and HP will come out with Mixed Reality headsets before the holidays and Asus will release one next spring. Headsets and motion controllers (starting at $299) from these companies are expected to be release along with the Fall Creators Update on October 17, notes PCMag.

Dubbed the Creators Update, the release has creativity at its core.
