  • Lenovo's mixed reality headset offers built-in tracking for $350

Most enhancements will be to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) - Microsoft's threat detection and protection service that is part of Windows 10 Enterprise, and which will bundle together Defender Application Guard (WDAG), Windows Defender Device Guard, and Windows Defender Antivirus.

Microsoft has just announced that Mixed Reality headsets will be on sale from October 17, though whether that's a global launch date or not isn't 100% clear.

It is not yet clear how Microsoft intends to push users to update, but it is popular opinion that the most secure Windows systems are typically those that are most up to date.

When you look at what's coming in the new code, however, it appears that the update is more of an incremental addition rather than anything really game-changing, albeit with a few caveats.

As far as gaming is concerned, Windows Creators Fall updates the Game Mode, which allows games to use the full processing power of a user's device. Windows users and administrators can enforce the upgrade to install it as early as possible, or wait until Windows Update selects the PC for the update. Microsoft has also added a feature called Windows Find my Pen, so you'll never lose your pen again.

The Fall Creators Update also include OneDrive filed on-demand. Windows Insiders will be the first to try the final version, and then it will be released to all users. The release of the Fall Creators Update also signals the arrival of some of the very first Mixed Reality headsets from third-party manufacturers. This will be ideal for those users who are planning on playing Xbox Play Anywhere games. The headsets will start at $299. They won't need complicated setup with external cameras, and all will work with Windows Mixed Reality controllers launching at the same time.

Showcased at their respective makers' IFA Berlin booths one by one, where prospective buyers learned about precise retail costs and vague release timelines, the five headsets have been brought together by project coordinator Microsoft for a little extra info.

Windows Mixed Reality - combine the physical and digital worlds through a supported headset.
