Microsoft extends Windows 10S free upgrade period

Microsoft extends Windows 10S free upgrade period”

Windows 10 S is a new edition of Windows 10 that is designed as a low-cost solution especially for the Education sector. Microsoft has announced its Surface Laptop and Surface Pro in June month. But it also said users who can't get the apps they really, really need in its store could upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, for US49.

A source says that at least one new device will launch at the London event, which would match past Surface launch dates in October. The device will be made available in all four currently available color choices Cobalt Blue, Burgundy or Graphite Gold.

Redmond's decision to give 10 S users longer to upgrade is because the OS has not proved a hit with customers, argued Clive Longbottom, founder of analyst firm Quocirca. You can even check for the availability of a desired color variant and can pre-order one right away after confirming the availability. The new markets getting the color options are Netherlands, Sweden, Hong Kong, China, Norway, Finland, France, Germany, Canada, Austria, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Denmark, Ireland, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Australia, and New Zealand. At the respective launch events the devices were showcased in various colours for consumers to pick from. Fortunately, Microsoft also revealed that it is extending the free upgrade from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 Pro through March 31, 2018.

Earlier, the tech giant had also mentioned that post the free upgrade period, anyone other than students who wished to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro will need to pay $49. Microsoft launched the device with Windows 10 S, a streamlined version of Windows 10 that only allows apps from the Windows Store. The Surface laptops are best suited for their work, play, or creativity. Once you take that away, there isn't much left. Did you find your country in the list?
