Windows 10 Spring Creators Update release date speculation

The fourth major feature update of Windows 10 is around the corner and is scheduled to be released in late April, 2018. The unofficial name of this update is Redstone 4 update. Microsoft has not announced any official name of this update but if we go through the test builds (which are unofficially uploaded to the Internet), we can speculate that the next version of Windows 10 will be version 1803 and it will be called Windows 10 Spring Creators update.

We can also speculate about the next version of Windows 10 after Spring Creators update will be the Redstone 5 update and it will be released somewhere in October 2018.

Microsoft introduced HDR support in Windows 10 Fall Creators update but it was only limited to a few select PCs with specific graphic cards and other hardware requirements. In the Spring Creators update, Microsoft has introduced wider support for HDR videos. This update will feature users with SDR capable hardware to run video in HDR mode.

Timeline feature

Timeline feature is the biggest feature included in Spring Creators update so far. The new timeline feature will let you resume your work on other devices. The timeline feature saves history of your work and captures snapshots of your apps you were using at a particular time.

This will let you start using your workspace at an earlier stage in the day. You can also start using the snapshot on another device. Microsoft stores all these changes in the cloud. So you need to be connected to the Internet to keep using this feature.
