Tech Recap: Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, iPhone X (ten), How-To guides

In case you missed it, Windows 10 version 1709 now almost complete, Apple reveals the iPhone X, and more tips to get the most out of PC.

This week on PUREinfoTech: Apple announces the iPhone X (it’s pronounced “ten”), the most expensive iPhone yet with a edge-to-edge Super Retina Display with odd cutout at the top and new A11 “Bionic” processor. Alongside with the $999 iPhone, the company also announced the Apple TV 4K, Apple Watch Series 3, and iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

On PC, this week, Microsoft quietly increased the device limit for apps and games you download from the Windows Store to 2000 per account. Windows 10 build 16288 rolled out for PCs enrolled in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program with minor improvements, and removes the watermark from the bottom right-corner.

In addition, the company released Windows 10 build 16362 for Insiders with PCs enrolled in the Fast ring (Skip Ahead) as part of the Redstone 4 update coming in 2018.

Update KB4038788 rolled out this week for devices running the Windows 10 Creators Update addressing a number of issues, and bumping the build number to 15063.608.

Microsoft also unveiled new privacy settings changes for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to make it simpler and clearer the data the company collects.

Help and How-To

This week, you also learned new tips to get the most out of your PC, including the steps to change system font size on Windows 10 now that with the release of the Creators Update, Microsoft removed these option.

If you missed to join in Skip Ahead in the Windows Insider Program, you can use this workaround to enroll your device after branch is close.

Finally, if you’re looking to refresh your desktop, don’t forget to download the Vintage Journey theme for Windows 10.
