Microsoft accidentally confirms Windows Sun Valley update

Microsoft first debuted the original Windows 10 update in 2015 and followed it up with the Anniversary Update in 2016. In early 2017, Microsoft said that it would be delivering two feature updates to the operating system each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, and there won’t be “Windows 11” or “Windows 12”.

We know that Microsoft is working on the “next generation of Windows”, which features a new visual refresh codenamed “Sun Valley” and it will be unveiled on June 24, ahead of the public launch this fall.

Microsoft appears to have accidentally published a support page for the upcoming Windows Sun Valley update prior to its official announcement. Yesterday, a Microsoft support document post accidentally revealed that the testing is currently underway for the “Windows Sun Valley” update.

Microsoft has confirmed the existence of “Windows Sun Valley” for the first time and it looks like the update will co-exist with Windows 10.

The company’s website doesn’t reveal additional information for the Sun Valley Update, but as we’ve previously reported, this update will ship with rounded corners and other design improvements.

As you can see in the above screenshot of Github commits, the support document in question has now been edited to delete the “Windows Sun Valley” line, suggesting Microsoft didn’t mean to let this slip out.
