Microsoft has recently announced that they are extending their most recent free upgrade promotion until next year. It seems that the company is giving Windows 10 S users a little more to time to consider if they want to upgrade to 10 Pro or not.

A report published in Windows Central revealed that Windows 10 S free upgrade would be available until March 31, 2018. The latest OS provides a better performance and longer battery life. However, it does not allow users to install apps from external sources outside the Windows Store. Hence, outstanding programs that users love to use like Steam and Photoshop cannot be installed.

Microsoft is aggressively pushing its Windows 10 S to make it the default operating system on Surface Laptops. Furthermore, the giant tech is promoting the 10 S to compete against Google’s Chromebooks. Once the free OS upgrade ends in March, the company could charge up to $49 for upgrading to Microsoft Windows 10 S.

Microsoft confirmed Windows 10 ‘Always Connected’ runs on Snapdragon 835

Microsoft and Qualcomm are both moving forward to install Windows on ARM. This suggests that traditional chipsets have taken over Windows for quite some time. However, modern mobile processors are opening new avenues as companies are currently working on Win32 for ARM’s chip designs.

A spokesperson from Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 devices that have Snapdragon 835 would soon be available this year.

He also claimed that both companies continue to have a close relationship with ASUS, Lenovo, and HP to bring “Always Connected,” a device that features always-on LTE connectivity.

The first “Always Connected” device will be launched in 2018. However, fans should not expect the gadget to run on popular software as Windows devices won't be Adobe-compatible.

The reason is that the companies are making sure that Win32 is compatible on ARM without copying Intel’sx86 ISA.
