Earlier this week, Microsoft prematurely published a blog post detailing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update release day before quickly pulling it. Well, now it's out again and with it comes confirmation: the update is indeed launching August 2.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update released date confirmed | TweakTown.com

Among the changes you can expect: a better-equipped, more power-efficient version of the Edge browser, more friendly security protocols with Windows Hello (which allows you to use your fingerprint, face, or eye to obtain access to site accounts and your PC), Windows Defender scheduling and notifications, the introduction of Windows Ink, Xbox Play Anywhere support, and lots more.

If you're still not on Windows 10, remember the free upgrade ends July 29.
