- New partners like Innowi, Kodisoft, and XOGO are building innovative solutions using Windows 10 IoT Core and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
- Windows 10 IoT Core will also be supported on Cherrytrail and Braswell platforms, in addition to the Baytrail, Apollo Lake, and Joule platforms supported today.
- Windows 10 IoT Core will be supported across Intel’s full range of processors, including the Core, Pentium, Celeron and Atom lines. Here is the full list of Windows IoT enabled SoCs and devices on our developer website.
- Windows 10 IoT Core support for Azure IoT Device Management, which provides highly scalable remote device management features.
- Turn-key connectivity to the Azure IoT Hub that offers reliable and secure device-to-cloud and cloud-to-device messaging, scaling to millions of devices.
- Support for the upcoming Azure IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service, which makes it easier to provision a connected device via Azure IoT services, leveraging Windows IoT TPM based security.
- Support for Project Rome that allows a user to launch an app or communicate with an app service on a remote device, enabling cross-device experiences using the Microsoft Graph.
- Support for Device Guard for IoT, which improves threat resistance by allowing only OS components and code signed by the OEM to load. This adds to the robust set of security features in Windows 10 IoT such as BitLocker and Secure Boot.
- Cortana, your personal digital assistant, is now available for you to integrate into your devices. Cortana will help you get things done by completing tasks and interacting with you using natural language in a consistent, contextual way.
