Microsoft has a lot of devices on its end and one that is the most anticipated among all is the Microsoft Surface Pro 5. Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is not expected to release in this April. Latest reports claim to further delay of hybrid tablet since its major component seems to suggest a delay.

It has been almost a year since Microsoft took the tech world by storm with the Surface Pro tablet, which is branded as the iPad Killer. While the current generation of the tablet Surface Pro 4 continues to impress everyone, the fact remains that most patrons now want a new one out in the open. One reason dished on the delay of the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release was the availability of the Intel's latest Kaby Lake chipsets. And as most know by now, those are already in transit, as per the ARS Technica.

As the Intel Kaby Lake chipsets considered a major factor for the release od Microsoft Surface Pro 5, the Redmond company hardly has enough reason to delay the next 2-in-1. Multiple reports have predicted that the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be running with the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update. This major component is set to launch next month, therefore the new tablet is also rumored to come out next month

However, new reports point to a delay in the full release of the Windows 10 Creators Update. Even though the new operating system is scheduled to be released this April, several analysts believe that users will also need to wait months before they can download the new Operating System. This theory claims that Company will also roll out the new OS in the same way it has rolled out last year's Anniversary Update.

According to the data provided by AdDuplex which was noted by PCWorld, the release of Microsoft's Windows 10 Anniversary Update extended to eight months before 90 percent of users were finally able to be installed with the Anniversary Update. However, it is supposed that Microsoft will most probably do the same in releasing the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update this year.

Consequently, if the release of the Anniversary Update took time to be fully released, the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update is also expected to be released gradually as well. This theory suggests that the delay in the release of the new operating system.

If all rumors of the addition of the Windows 10 Creators Update in the highly anticipated Microsoft Surface Pro 5 turn out to be true, then the release of the latest hybrid tablet will most likely be affected as well. For more updates stay tuned to Droid Report.
