Microsoft has today announced that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will be arriving officially on August 2nd, 2016, alongside announcing that there are now over 350 million Windows 10 devices out there in the wild. From today, you have only one month to take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer, which expires on July 29th, a few days before the Anniversary Update rolls out.

From Microsoft’s official blog post:

Today we’re excited to announce the next major update to Windows 10 – the Windows 10 Anniversary Update – is coming on August 2. – We’d like to say a special thank you to each of you who have upgraded to Windows 10. With over 350 million devices now running Windows 10, customer satisfaction is higher than any previous version of Windows and customer engagement is also incredible with more than 135 billion hours of use on Windows 10 since launch. We’re pleased that so many of you are being more productive and having more fun with Windows 10. Your feedback has been a key input into the design of the Anniversary Update.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been in development since November last year, and with only a few weeks of that development left, it shouldn’t be long before Insiders have the final bits in-hand to test. If history is anything to go by, Insiders should receive the final bits a couple weeks before official roll out on August 2nd, meaning it shouldn’t be long now.
