Microsoft is working on one more major update for Windows 8.1 before the launch of Windows 9. Windows 8.1 Update 2 is confirmed by the tech support of the company while addressing some concerns of an EightForums’ user. The tech support also confirmed that Windows 9 is one year away from release. Windows 8.1 Update 2 is 3 GB in size and will be delivered through Windows Store.
Windows 8.1 Update 2
Unfortunately, we do not have details regarding the changes made in Windows 8.1 in Update 2 but the file size suggests its major. The estimated file size of Windows 8.1 Update 2 is 3 GB almost as big as the Windows 8.1 itself. The update will arrive in August or September this year and Microsoft has started training his employees for it.
This information can be false since we are trusting the words of a user from one of the most popular Windows 8 forums. The Update 1 was just 700 MB in size which indicates that Update 2 will bring a lot of changes compared to the former. The most talked about feature in Update 2 is bringing back the start menu similar to the original while retaining the live tiles start screen as well.
Microsoft has to look after the delivery method since many users complained about errors and slow download speeds of Windows Store when updating from Windows 8 to 8.1. More information about the update is expected soon from official sources.
Microsoft has reduced the life cycle of Windows which might indicate that Windows 8 has been a major flop. Only a small percentage of users have switched to the latest Windows while others are still enjoying the simplicity of Windows 7. It is better to delay Windows 9 and let users adjust to Windows 8 before confusing them all over again.
