Never say never. Even though Microsoft previously stated that Windows 10 is the last version of Windows ever to be released, we now have a strong reason to believe that the company has changed its mind. In a promotional tweet for the upcoming Microsoft Event, which is scheduled to take place on June 24th at 11 am ET, the Windows team shared an animated image of sunlight in the shape of the number eleven shining through a window, suggesting Windows 11.

Unfortunately, that’s all we know about Windows 11 at this point. However, the lack of official information doesn’t stop us from talking about the features and improvements that Microsoft is likely working on.

Unified User Interface Design

The user interface of Windows 10 is still inconsistent, even though the operating system was first released in 2015. Just open a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, such as Microsoft Store, next to a Win32 app, such as Control Panel, and you’ll instantly see what we’re talking about.

Microsoft is already in the process of changing legacy icons to a brand-new icon set, and we expect Windows 11 to bring even more user interface improvements, finally unifying the look and feel of the operating system.

Xbox Streaming

Microsoft’s all-inclusive pass to the world of Xbox, called Xbox Game Pass, has been a great success, and the company can make it even more irresistible by allowing Xbox Series X / S owners to stream their favorite titles on PC.

Considering that we’re currently in the middle of a huge GPU shortage, it’s basically guaranteed that many gamers would be more than happy to give up some latency to play the latest shooter games using mouse and keyboard.

More Advanced Features

Microsoft has been making Windows power users happy by continuously expanding its set of freeware system utilities, called Microsoft PowerToys. The currently available utilities include a system-wide color picking utility, a window manager, add-ons that enable preview pane rendering in File Explorer, a Windows Shell Extension for quickly resizing images, and more.

We expect some of these utilities to be integrated directly into Windows 11, which would help Microsoft further establish its operating system as the best choice for professionals.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
