We’re only a few days away from the moment when Microsoft officially kicks off the rollout of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for retail users, but in the meantime, the Windows team is also working on the first builds of Redstone 2.

The Anniversary Update is also referred to as Redstone 1, so the second Redstone update is what comes next, with sources claiming that the public debut will take place in the spring.

Microsoft, however, is ready to start work on it in August, and the first builds are likely to be released to insiders soon after the debut of the Anniversary Update.

No major changes despite build number bump

And according to BuildFeed, the first Windows 10 Redstone 2 build 14894 was already compiled on July 27, and Microsoft is testing it internally. For the moment, however, nobody can tell for sure whether the exact same build will be released to insiders too, but the chances are that it won’t as Microsoft compiles new builds daily, and a release candidate will only come later when we get closer to the launch date.

What this build does actually is to confirm that work on Redstone 2 has already started and that Insiders will soon receive new goodies to try out on their PCs and mobile devices.

Of course, it’s premature to discuss features and improvements that will be part of the first Windows 10 Redstone 2 builds, but given the fact that it’s just the first version, don’t expect any breaking changes to be released so early. Usually, new features are released throughout the development process, and engineers are now just trying to lay off the foundation for this be possible in the next builds.

In the meantime, the full focus is on the Anniversary Update rollout due on August 2, but it’s good to see that Redstone 2 builds are already there in the pipeline, and insiders will get them in just a few weeks.

Thank for the tip, Steve Truman!
