Microsoft is working on a new significant update currently known as Threshold 2 and the company may be looking at November as a potential roll out time frame. Originally, we were expecting the next update for Windows 10 in October, but according to WinBeta, the software giant is planning to delay the release of the non-patch update until November.

The new release date should be look as a good thing, pushing Threshold 2 to a later date gives Microsoft more time to keep working on the new features and changes, which hopefully will result on a better and more stable build for customers.

While Threshold 2 is just a codename, the company will probably name the update close to the release date. According to the Windows enthusiast site, Microsoft is likely to market Threshold 2 as “Windows 10 November Update” or “Windows 10 Update November “, but the software maker may also opt not to name the update at all, and push it as another normal update, as moving forward with “Windows as a Service” versioning and naming aren’t really relevant anymore.

Currently, Insiders are already testing some of the changes coming with Threshold 2 in the latest build for PCs the company recently made available. However, there are still a number of improvements and features yet to be seen, as we are also expecting to see changes on Microsoft Edge, such as support for extension and touch gestures. In addition, we’re also waiting for the Messaging universal app that we have seen in previous Microsoft demos, but wasn’t bundled on the official release of Windows 10.

It’s worth pointing out that Windows 10 “Threshold 2” is not expected to be a super big update with a ton of new features and changes. The next major update for Windows 10 will occur in 2016 when Microsoft releases Redstone, which is expected to bring major significant changes to the operating system.
