Windows 10 Users May Need to Purchase New Computers in 2018

According to reports, a number of computers have been blocked from receiving future Windows 10 updates. So, unless Microsoft addresses the incompatibility issue, there will be many computers that will no longer be able to receive updates in early 2018.

That could be a big issue, especially for the users who have updated their Windows 8/8.1 license to Windows 10. It seems that the issue is affecting computers that have been built around Intel’s Atom Clover Trail processors.

These chips come on entry-level computers that have been released back in 2012 or later. The mentioned computers have come with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, and as most of you know, Microsoft made Windows 10 available to them as a FREE update.

Well, reports are saying that owners of these computers are not able to install the Windows 10 Creators Update. By trying to install this update on a computer that comes with an Intel’s Atom Clover Trail processor you will receive a message saying “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC.”

In other words, these computers are stuck on Windows 10 version 1607. We remind you that each Windows 10 update comes with security updates for 18 months, meaning that the 1607 build that was released last year in August will lose Microsoft’s support in 2018.

Keep in mind that people will still be able to use their computers, but without the regular security patches, which might make the machine vulnerable to bugs and security holes.

In case you had a computer running on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 and you’ve decided to NOT upgrade to Windows 10, you will still receive support for this operating system until October 2023. With that being said, Microsoft will have many users who will request their Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 license back in case the company doesn’t solve this problem.

iOS 10.3.3, tvOS 10.2.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 Available With New Updates

It seems that Apple has been quite busy in the last few weeks as the company has just released new versions for all operating systems owned by it.

The iOS, tvOS, watchOS and macOS have now new versions, which can be installed on the Apple device that you own. For example, if you own a smartphone then you probably have already installed the new iOS 10.3.3 to it. The Apple TVs can now be updated to tvOS 10.2.2, the Apple Watches to watchOS 3.2.3, while the Macbooks can be updated to macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

As expected, the new iOS 10.3.3 comes with usual bug fixes and performance enhancements, but it also improves the stability of the operating system. Unfortunately, the iOS 10.3.3 doesn’t come with any new features or options, which can be quite disappointing.

The watchOS 3.2.3 contains bug fixes, but no new features and options have been added to it. However, you can install it on your Apple Watch via the Watch App that you have installed on your iPhone.

If you own an Apple TV, we suggest you to install the new tvOS 10.2.2 as soon as possible as it comes with performance enhancements, bug fixes and security improvements. On the other hand, the new macOS Sierra 10.12.6 is actually a minor update, but Apple is suggesting us to update our devices as soon as possible to avoid security breaches.

Unfortunately for the iOS jailbreak fans, Pangu has not released a fully working iOS 10 jailbreak and it is not known exactly when this will happen. However, we remind you that the hacker group has presented the iOS 10 jailbreak a few weeks ago, but for some reason, it has not released it to the public yet.

Do you think that a fully working iOS 10 jailbreak will be released by Pangu before this autumn?
