Windows RT Update Not to Have Any Splash of Windows 10 

August 17, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It was only one month ago that the Windows RT users were delighted when Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul gave out the cue for something heading our way.

And in the recent days, rumors were that there would be a major overhaul for Windows RT that would be bonded with Microsoft’s Windows 10. But that seemed to be never shaping up.

Microsoft has confirmed that a Windows RT update would soon be dispatched to users. But the upgrade will no way feature any Windows 10 lineage; neither will it boast the universal apps that are accompanying the latest OS iteration from Microsoft.


The confirmation was given by a company spokesperson via e-mail. The update will still be built around the Windows 8.1 OS, and won’t feature the support for downloading newer apps.

Users will only be able to download those apps compatible with Windows 8.1. The silver lining here is with the new visual upgrades that is said to be inclined towards the appearance of Windows 10.

Visual refinements will be brought around to the Start menu and lock screen in the Windows RT running devices. The coding for the new Start menu will also be based on the Windows 10 technical preview.

The update, which is the third major one for Windows RT, will be rolled out to the devices by September this year. Users could check with Windows Update on their device to make sure it gets downloaded once available.

There are also notions prevailing that it could be the last update rolled out by Microsoft for the Windows RT devices.
