Other than that, Microsoft has also brought its mixed reality experience with this new Windows update, which is an AR experience, in which you can place any 3D objects in real world. It’s a cool concept but let’s sit back and see what more MS brings in this space, which is rapidly growing in the market, and now Apple has also boosted the AR, with the introduction of its iPhone 10.

We that said, we think this new update of Windows 10 is by far the most incredible one loaded with features and improvements in all major areas. After all, Microsoft won’t be making any Windows 11 in the future, so this update has to be the one of the best of Microsoft since the Windows 7 era.
