At BUILD 2016 Microsoft announced Windows 10 Anniversary Update , which would be what Insiders would know as Redstone 1.

The update will be coming to PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox One, Microsoft HoloLens and IOT and deliver the update to devices by this Summer.

The update includes the following key features:

  1. With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update user will be able to sign into supporting websites with Windows Hello biometric security.
  2. Windows Ink enabling you to write on your device as you do on paper, creating sticky notes, drawing on a whiteboard, and easily sharing your analog thoughts in the digital world. Windows Ink is integrated into apps like Maps, Microsoft Edge, and Office and will be easy to integrate into 3rd party apps with as few as two lines of code.
  3. Cortana will be available on the lock screen, giving you quicker access to your personal assistant for common tasks across all types of devices without unlocking your PC. Cortana can also complete certain notification-based tasks on your Windows or Android phone, such as receiving and sending text messages, on your PC. Developers now have full access to Cortana’s proactive intelligence through proactive actions, allowing your apps to perform tasks based on user context by linking existing actions in your deep-link enabled apps and websites.
  4. UWP apps come to Xbox through a Unified Windows Store and every Xbox One can become a dev kit, meaning every user can become an Xbox developer.

The update is set for Summer, and will likely hit servers and PCs by the end of the season.
