New Surface Products Might Possibly Be Launched Next Month

Microsoft Expands Availability of Surface Laptop Free Windows 10 Pro Upgrade

Microsoft Corporate VP of Devices Panos PanayMatt Weinberger/Business InsiderMicrosoft is planning to announce at least one new Surface device at its annual "Future Decoded" event in London at the end of October, reports the Verge.

But apply a dollop of cynicism and it could be argued Microsoft is extending the upgrade potentially due to the Chrome OS-like Windows 10 S not having as big of an appeal as traditional Windows.

The announcement was part of wider Microsoft news surrounding its Surface Laptops, which have been made available in a range of new colours.

The reason? "We hope this provides increased flexibility for those people searching for the perfect back-to-school or holiday gift". As ZDNetnotes, promised apps like iTunes are still missing from the store, which is probably playing into the extension.

The device that we're seemingly most likely to see is a new iteration of the Surface Book.

But a new Surface Book may be in the works. Microsoft has also announced that the Windows 10 S operating system upgrade will be aware for free until March 2018.

Windows 10 S is Microsoft's secure and better-performing OS offering that only runs verified Windows Store apps and doesn't allow third-party apps. Bing is the default search engine in Edge and IE and there's no option to replace it.

Microsoft has announced the availability of the Surface Laptop in a few more countries, including Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.

Another possibility: a new Surface device powered by an ARM processor. You can read our full review of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update here. Surface laptops are designed with compact and light weight design so anyone can easily carry it along wherever they go.

Windows 10 Pro is aimed at small businesses and includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus device and app management, data protection services, and support for remote and mobile working.
