Windows 10 Anniversary Update: Everything you need to know

Ian Paul | Aug. 2, 2016
Microsoft's biggest update to Windows 10 is set to drop August 2. Here's what you need to know to get ready for the big day.

New emoji


Microsoft cooked up some special Ninja Cat emoji additions to Windows 10. The new OS will also support Unicode 9.0 with all of its new emoji including ROFL, facepalm, and bacon.

Calendar appointments in the taskbar

If you click on the clock in the Windows 10 taskbar right now, you’ll see a calendar that looks a lot like a mini-Windows Store app. After the Anniversary Update, this calendar will add listings for upcoming appointments right below it. A small but handy addition.

Tap to Pay

Finally, Microsoft is getting in the game of mobile payments by partnering with MasterCard and Visa to bring NFC-based tap to pay to Windows 10 Mobile devices. The feature will be U.S.-only at launch and part of the new Wallet mobile app.
