Windows 10 S is on its way out. Get ready for “S Mode.”
- Microsoft Corporate VP of Windows Joe Belfiore confirms that Windows 10 S, the latest version of the operating system, will be discontinued sooner rather than later.
- Instead, all versions of Windows 10 will get “S Mode,” which enables the same features: Higher performance and better battery life, with the tradeoff that you can only install apps from the built-in Microsoft Store.
- The complicated part is that Microsoft itself never actually considered Windows 10 S a separate operating system — the company always thought of it as Windows 10 with “S Mode” enabled.
