Microsoft’s Surface and Windows AI event: What to expect on May 20

Microsoft is hosting a special event in Seattle on May 20, and as always, the company is remaining tight-lipped about what exactly we’re going to see. Luckily, we already have a pretty good idea about what the company intends to talk about, and it’s likely to involve Windows, Surface, and yet-to-be-announced AI experiences that will join them together. 

Unfortunately, this year’s event will not be livestreamed, which means you will have to follow our live blog to see the news as it happens. Or, keep reading for a preview of the announcements I’m expecting to see.

Microsoft is expected to spend some time taking the wraps off its next major Windows 11 update, which will ship later this year as the Windows 11 2024 Update. This release will ship first on new Qualcomm Snapdragon X-based PCs launching in June and will roll out to everyone else in the fall.
