A new clue has indicated when the next Windows 10 update might arrive, just two months after Microsoft released the Anniversary Update.

Several reports have claimed Microsoft will release two major updates to Windows 10 in 2017, with the first one currently going by the codename Redstone 2. Thanks to a discovery by Twitter user WalkingCat, we can expect that update to arrive in March 2017. Earlier this week, Microsoft officials published some documentation that included references to a version of Windows 10 as "1703" as well as its release date.

Based on Microsoft's current naming convention and the codes used for previous updates, it can be concluded that the Redstone 2 build will roll out in March. ZDNet, which has a good record when it comes to Microsoft rumours, has confirmed that March 2017 is "indeed, the current ship target for Windows 10 Redstone 2". Microsoft might even discuss the update at its October event.

Microsoft recently invited the media to a hardware event on 26 October in New York City, where it is expected to unveil new Surface PC products, including an all-in-one PC in three different screen sizes.
