Five things your business needs to know about the Windows 10 anniversary update: Cortana, Ink, security and future update cycle

The main features for consumer and IT teams to look out for in the Windows 10 anniversary update

Epstein told Computerworld UK that these updates will not be forced upon organisations, though. "You can have a couple of years between first visibility of a new feature update and a company having to move to a feature update," he says. "So there is enough time to skip an update and do testing for deployment. The guidance we would work with is to think about your different groups of users and start to categorise them into different rings of adoption."

5. Edge improvements

The new-look Microsoft web browser Edge is apparently the fastest available (tell Mashable's Raymond Wong that) and has been optimised with the anniversary update to bring power saving benefits. Epstein says: "We think Edge browser is faster than other browsers, and more secure and more importantly battery life is much, much better with the anniversary update."

Edge has been optimised to save on power consumption by "using fewer CPU cycles, consuming less memory, and minimising the impact of background activity and peripheral content," according to Microsoft.
