If you're a Mac user who is remotely interested in Windows, or has to use some of Microsoft's desktop OS for work or other tasks, Microsoft has a new solution for you. Traditionally, Mac users would need to rely on software to run Windows on their Mac, but, as of right now, that's not an option for Apple Silicon owners. (That's changing in the future, though.)
It hasn't been all that long since Microsoft officially announced the next major update to its wildly popular Windows desktop operating system. With Windows 11, the company is welcoming a lot of big changes to the mix, some major polish across the UI, and much more. And support is in the works for macOS, too.
We surely hope that Microsoft's attempt at a campy viral campaign for when Windows 11 launches won't be a promotional blunder as this cringe-worthy Windows 7 launch party video.
Microsoft Windows 11 preview is now officially available to download for testing for Windows Insider members ahead of its public launch sometime in the fall of this year.
Microsoft's goal was to launch its cloud gaming service, xCloud (or Xbox Cloud Gaming), directly on the App Store. But Apple isn't keen on that idea (even after making some changes to seem like it is). So, like other companies, Microsoft had to use a workaround, utilizing Safari to welcome the service for iOS users.
Once upon a time, Microsoft had a plan to keep Windows 10 as the version of its desktop operating system. There would be plenty of updates after the initial launch, but 10 was the number to stick with from there on out. But in June 2021 Microsoft decided to change things up and announce a brand new version of the OS.
The Microsoft Store on Windows 11 is introducing noteworthy new features which were clearly designed to put more money in creators’ pockets, directly challenging Apple's business model.
At one point in time, Microsoft had aspirations to make Windows 10 the last "major update" for its desktop operating system. But apparently the company wanted to turn things up to 11. Today, Microsoft officially introduced the next big update to Windows.
Apple's Files app now lets you access NTFS-formatted media, select multiple items with a trackpad and stare at a new progress indicator when copying or moving files in iPadOS 15.
It took a bit of doing, but Microsoft (like other companies) figured out the "best way" to get its cloud game streaming aspirations on iPhone and iPad: web browsers. Microsoft launched its xCloud game streaming service in a beta earlier this year. But now the company has confirmed a broader launch is coming soon, and with one very important change along with it.
Microsoft has scheduled a new Windows-themed press event for June 24 at 11am ET, promising to show “what’s next for Windows.” Could this be a major unveiling of Windows 11?
