Microsoft has announced a release date for Windows 11, saying the update to its desktop operating system for consumers will begin to roll out beginning October 5, 2021.
Apple's launched a new iCloud Passwords app that lets Windows users view and manage any saved website passwords in Safari and use them in Chrome or Edge, right on their PC.
Thanks to the new Parallels Desktop 17, macOS users can officially run Windows 11 on their Macs despite Apple not supporting Microsoft's latest operating system via Boot Camp.
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.)
With iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS 12 Monterey, Apple's FaceTime has finally become a cross-platform service. You can now start a FaceTime call with your friends who don't have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac. The non-Apple users will be able to join the call from their Android or Windows device.
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.
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.
