As with other Windows 10 updates, this update will be free for existing Windows 10 users.

Microsoft has been hard at work finishing the packaging of their latest Creator's update for Windows 10 - the Fall Creator's Update. The new design language is codenamed Project NEON, and it brings a lot of changes to the user interface in Windows 10.

A handful of new features will try to bridge the gaps between Windows 10 and devices running iOS and Android. Just install the Xamarin Live Player app on your iOS device, pair it to your PC and you're ready to go.

However, as pretty much expected, Microsoft has mentioned that to completely experience this feature, third-party apps will have to use easy to implement APIs. And lastly, OneDrive Placeholders are making a comeback, but they have a new name: OneDrive Files On-Demand.

One of the first apps to "give people a sense of what's possible with the Fall Creators Update", is Windows Story Remix. Plus, the app will let you insert 3D objects into your photos and videos.

Microsoft is trying to make its personal computer-bound operating system useful on the smartphone.

The Windows 10 UI will get a new coat of paint, too.
