Microsoft is holding a digital event on June 24 in which it will “unveil the next generation of Windows,” as the company wrote on invitations sent. The invitation did promise appearances by key Microsoft executives, including CEO Satya Nadella and Chief Product Officer Panos Panay and it’s known Nadella did promise that the next generation of Windows would be “one of the most significant updates of Windows of the past decade.” To remember, Windows 10 launched in 2015. At that time the company referred to it as “the last version of Windows.” After years, the event announced for June 24 will be the first dedicated entirely to Windows, without knowing if it will be about an update or more. Rumors are about the Windows 11, as a new version of Windows with a new name. At least, the event invite included an image of what looks like a new Windows logo.
To speculate more, the Windows event also starts at 11AM ET, not the usual start time for typical Windows and Surface events. Experts remember that Microsoft has been working on something codenamed Sun Valley, which the company has referred to as a “sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows. A new Start menu, new system icons, File Explorer improvements were anticipated as the minor part of the duture update. Microsoft might also be considering allowing third-party commerce platforms in apps. Moving to Windows 11 branding would also back up Microsoft’s reinvestment in Windows. Sure, June 24 will come !
