June 2 (UPI) -- Microsoft has announced it will unveil the latest version of the Windows operating system in a June 24 event.

The news comes after Microsoft said last month that Windows 10X for dual-screen devices would no longer ship. The new Windows is expected to incorporate significant changes in the user interface called "Valley of the Sun."

Microsoft has deemed the updates the "next generation of Windows".

Changes to icons, fixes for rearranging apps, Xbox features and Bluetooth audio are expected.

"Soon we will share one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in statement. "Our promise to you is this: We will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator who is looking for the most innovative, new, open platform to build and distribute and monetize applications. We look forward to sharing more very soon."

Nadella and Chief Product Officer Panos Panaj will present the new operating software at the June 24 event.

Windows was launched in 1985, ushering in the era of personal computing.
