An open source piece of software by the name of Windows Bridge for iOS has Microsoft aiming to bring in developers galore. The company also has more behind-the-scenes information on how the Windows Bridge for iOS tool works in a blog post here. However Microsoft’s reservation tool, which you may have used in the coming months prior to Windows 10’s release, states that your download could take up to a couple weeks to arrive.
Microsoft announced some huge news at its Build developers conference earlier this year, revealing that Windows 10 can run reworked Android and iOS apps. I feel as though if a continued stink is raised, Microsoft could very well backtrack on its current mechanism.
Microsoft has officially launched Windows 10 OS last Wednesday, July 29.
PC Mag has reported that the company is eyeing iOS developers in open sourcing Windows Bridge. Microsoft announced that the iOS version of its Windows Bridge has entered first public preview. There won’t be any new installation taking place on your computer. With Windows Bridge, iOS developers can begin testing the software that will let them convert iOS apps built for x86 and x64 processor architectures to a format that will run on Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. It’s similar to the online image search functionality that Microsoft added to its other Office apps on Windows in place of the aging ClipArt gallery.
For the numerous users, who are upgrading to Microsoft 10, the free upgrade will install the new DVD player itself.
If you want to watch a DVD on your newly updated Windows 10 machine, you won’t be happy to hear that Microsoft will soon want you to pay for the privilege. Even more exciting, Sway is now available on Windows 10, marking the first time Microsoft has made a native app version of Sway available outside of iOS.
Admittedly, auto-updating of Windows Store apps is much less of an issue versus driver or OS feature updates, but it still gives us a reason for concern.
