No Comments on Microsoft details Windows 10’s IoT capabilities in the Fall Creators Update

This build is version 16299 and is separate from the latest 1709 build of

Windows 10. In the past, Windows 10 IoT was known as ‘Windows Embedded’

and represents a version of the OS for low-powered devices.


														
							

These are the new features in the update:

  • Richer .NET API surface for UWP apps.
  • We’ve improved ink support on Windows 10 IoT Core so that you can now utilize DirectInk APIs for highlighter, pencil, and vector-based ink. We’ve also added XAML ink controls for UWP, including InkCanvas and InkToolbar, which enable stencils like rulers and protractors. Multi-modal interactions such as simultaneous pen and touch are also now supported on compatible hardware.
  • Assigned Access is a feature in Windows 10 IoT Enterprise that enables single-purpose devices like kiosks to provide users with a specific experience by restricting a user account to using a single Universal Windows app.
  • Rather than having to build custom out-of-band management solutions to handle device-specific troubleshooting, we’ve enabled Emergency Management Services on Windows 10 IoT Core. T
  • We’ve enabled user mode bus access on Windows 10 IoT Enterprise through the Windows.Devices APIs, just like on Windows 10 IoT Core.
  • On certain types of IoT devices such as point-of-sale solutions, low-power line displays are important for communicating essential information to customers.
