Windows Central reports that following months of testing, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has finally begun its public rollout, which will be taking place gradually around the world over the next few months.

If you’re impatient to receive the update you can check manually to see if it’s ready to download via Windows Update. And even if the rollout hasn’t rolled round to your part of the world yet, you can go to the Windows 10 website and select the option to “Update Now.” Or you can download the ISO files for a clean install.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update has been thoroughly tested by Windows Insiders over the past few months.

Microsoft might not be done introducing new Surface hardware this year just because the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro are on store shelves. The company has confirmed that devices executive Panos Panay will be presenting at the company's two-day Future Decoded event (starting October 31st -- yes, Halloween), hinting that he'll introduce new hardware. A source speaking to The Verge supports this with word that there will be "at least one" new piece of hardware at the event, so it seems like Microsoft's habit of introducing new Surface machines in October will remain intact. As it stands, there are a few systems that...
