It can only run UWP (Universal Windows Platform) applications, or UWP apps, from the Windows Store, but it will be ideal for students because it will have all the Office applications that a student typically uses, plus it will be able to run Office 365 off the cloud as well. The most used PC Operating System is still the Windows OS.
The Windows 10 Creators Update's new dashboard for Windows Defender ATP, called Security Center, gives IT more visibility into users' profiles and PCs. Microsoft has ditched many Windows Phone from receiving Redstone 3 Update.
Now that Microsoft is indeed holding an unveiling event on May 2 with the hashtag #MicrosoftEDU, people's hopes of finally seeing and hearing about the Surface Phone are reignited. It's rather troublesome to see Microsoft not ready with a Surface Book successor, since the last Surface Book was launched in October 2015, and previous year we were treated with a meagre performance based upgrade only.
Now Microsoft appears to aiming at the other end of the market. As for any news regarding the Surface Pro 5, Belfiore did not comment further regarding the hybrid device. Other features rumored for the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 include a longer battery life, a USB Type-C port support, as well as a rechargeable Surface Pen. This is exactly what rumors suggest is happening to the Surface Book. One could probably fairly say sales were lower than expected because the product wasn't good enough for the price.
Removing that 2-in-1 design will then position the Surface Book as a notebook, which its name implies, and leave the 2-in-1 segment to the very popular Surface Pro line of tablets.
The release of the Microsoft Surface Phone has been in the rumor mill for a long time now despite the fact that the Redmond, Washington technology company never specifically mentioned their plans about the said product. However, that's highly unlikely to happen at the May 2 event in NY. References to the cloud OS have been seen in the Windows 10 Creators Update. The Windows 10 Creators Update is probably one of the biggest leaps the company has made. Because of that, devices running on Windows 10 Cloud will be much cheaper. Sources suggest it could get powered by an ARM processor, given the fact that the Redmond giant joined hands with Qualcomm past year to build ARM-based processors.For now, nothing is officially confirmed but we should hear more as Microsoft will host the event in NY in just a few week's time.
