Microsoft has unveiled its next-generation mobile operating system for Windows 10, the Windows 10 IoT platform.
The platform, codenamed “Windows IoT”, will run on a range of IoT devices including cars, wearable devices, security cameras, and more.
The company has also announced a slew of updates to the OS, including a brand new feature called “Windows 10 IoT Hub”, which enables users to remotely manage and manage their IoT devices, with the ability to manage devices and apps remotely via the Windows Hub.

Windows 10’s IoT Hub is an important step towards the Windows operating system becoming a more unified, integrated platform, with devices and applications able to interact with each other without requiring any interaction from the user.
Windows 10’s next-gen mobile operating platform is also the first Windows 10 to support Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi Calling.
Windows Hub is currently only supported for devices with Windows 10 Enterprise or later, and Windows 10 for Work users will be able to choose to add it to any device.
The Windows 10 version of the IoT Hub will include a number of new features and improvements, including new device management, improved support for new IoT devices and sensors, and a new “IoT Hub for Business” feature.
These new features will help developers integrate their IoT applications and services with the Windows IoT Platform, enabling them to create a fully integrated, cross-platform platform that’s both flexible and secure.
Microsoft has also made significant changes to its Windows IoT platform in the past year.
The OS is now based on Microsoft Azure, which enables it to be used in a number more ways than before.
For example, the OS will now be able connect to a wide range of cloud-based services, including Microsoft Azure’s own cloud, Azure Cloud Drive, and the Microsoft Azure cloud.
Microsoft is also adding an API that allows developers to build applications using the Windows Runtime for Windows IoT to make use of the OS’ APIs.
Microsoft says the next version of Windows will be released in May 2020.
