Leaked: Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming August 2

The update will drop four days after Windows 10's free upgrade deadline on July 29.

Windows 10's Anniversary Update will happen August 2, if a press headline posted, and then pulled, from Microsoft's site is any indication. Spotted by Neowin Tuesday morning, the August 2 date would be four days after Windows 10's free upgrade deadline ends on July 29.

The highly anticipated Anniversary Update will bring major improvements to Windows 10, which debuted almost a year ago on July 29, 2015. Windows 10 Insiders have received tastes of what's to come in preview builds released over the past months, and we already know what some of its best features will be.

Now we also have a date, and it makes the decision to upgrade to Windows 10 for free by July 29 a tougher one for holdouts. Will the Anniversary Update convince you to upgrade to Windows 10, or are you still planning to stay away? Let us know in the comments.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
