Microsoft is speeding up the development of Windows 10 Redstone
5 as the Windows 10 version 1803 (codenamed Redstone 4) is just
around the corner. Microsoft is almost ready to switch the
focus to the Redstone 5 update as the software giant is
finalizing the RTM of the next Windows 10 release. Windows 10
Redstone 5 is expected to see daylight in the fall.
Microsoft is already testing the preview builds of Windows 10
Redstone 5 with the Windows Insiders in the Skip Ahead ring and
it comes with some new features, including Sets. In addition to
Sets, Microsoft is making more changes to the operating system.
With the latest Windows 10 Redstone 5 build, Microsoft is
bringing an updated Data Usage Settings that will show more
details. The feature is aimed at devices with SIM such as
Surface Pro LTE and Always Connected PCs. The all-new Data
Usage Settings displays how much data you are using while
roaming, and you can always disable roaming under Cellular
Microsoft says that roaming usage info will appear in Data
Usage Settings but only when it is active. “We’ve updated
Data Usage Settings to let you know how much data you are using
while roaming. The roaming usage info will appear once you
start using roaming data. As a reminder, if you’d like to
enable or disable roaming altogether, you can find the option
under Cellular Settings,” Microsoft explained.
This new change is already in preview for some users, although
it is an early implementation of the settings. Microsoft
might be testing new solutions and improved interface to detail
the data usage in a much better way.
The latest builds of Windows 10 Redstone 5 includes some other
interesting changes as well, for example, the is testing
stickers in the Windows 10 touch keyboard. Microsoft has
already published a new collection called “Windows Stickers”
but it doesn’t seem to work just yet.
The touch keyboard in Windows 10 has evolved a lot in the last
few months and it is expected to receive plenty of improvements
in the next version of Windows 10, including Redstone 4 update.
Windows 10 Redstone 5 is projected to launch in the fall and
the development will be accelerated once the Redstone 4 update
is out. The Redstone 5 could be a bigger update than
Redstone 4 in terms of features and improvements.
