The company also says that developers working on Windows 10 will have the chance to finally upload their universal Windows apps to the Windows Dev Center using “production quality Windows 10 tools on July 29th.”
The new update is available immediately, but only for Windows Insiders signed in with a Microsoft Account, and through the Windows Update, so no more ISO files for download until further notice. The company needs to keep testing the upgrade process, so it needs everyone to stress test the upgrade process using Windows Update.
