Windows RT Users Will Receive Some Windows 10 Features In September

Microsoft / Tech

If you’re like me, you may still be holding on to that Windows RT tablet (Surface 2 for me), and wondering when and if you will be receiving Windows 10. You won’t have to wait much longer to get some variety of update as September is just a month away, and that’s when a service update should start as stated in a recent update to the Microsoft FAQ – What about Windows RT? – that a site called WMPU found back on August 8th.

Right now, the FAQ is only providing information that an improved Start Menu and lock screen will be featured. More features are hopefully going to show up, but as to which ones, we will just have to wait and see once September hits. The full message in the FAQ says:

If you’re running Windows RT, your device won’t upgrade to Windows 10. We will have an update available in September 2015 that will improve the Start menu and lock screen. Check Windows Update on your Windows RT device to make sure it is ready to download the update when available.

Since there isn’t a specific date when the update will start hitting RT devices, all we can go by is September 2015. I’d be nice to get a little more information out, but mums the word unfortunately. Darn Microsoft.

New and updated Universal Windows apps in the Windows 10 store will not be supported on RT devices as it’s only for platforms that has a Windows 10 core though the store will support ARM based Windows Phones and soon to be ARM based tablets.

What other features do you think will be coming to Windows RT and do you plan on upgrading to a slimmed down version of Windows 10 if you do own an RT device? Let us know in the comment section below, or on Google Plus, Facebook, or Twitter.
