Windows 10 IoT Insider Preview adds support for Raspberry Pi 3

On the fourth birthday of the original Rasperry Pi Model B, Raspberry Pi 3 was announced today. The new device rocks a 64 bit 1.2 GHz quad core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1.

Microsoft seems to be prepared, as they are releasing a new build of Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview to support the new device. The update is available today.

The new Raspberry Pi 3 is faster, more powerful and the first out of the box IoT ready Raspberry Pi. We’re thrilled to deliver the power of Windows 10 on the new board and your feedback continues to help us improve Windows 10 IoT Core. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll be able to make in the coming weeks.

The firm also said that they're working with element14 to allow customers to use Windows 10 IoT Core as part of the Raspberry Pi Customization Service. "OEMs will now be able to build versions of the Raspberry Pi that meet their unique requirements, use the open source BSP that Microsoft has released and deploy with Windows 10 IoT Core."
