Technology giant Microsoft, which recently released Windows 10 to the public, is now set to introduce the iconic Start Menu to Windows RT users via the Windows RT 8.1 Update 3.

According to a Winbeta report, that quotes Microsoft's official FAQ webpage, users can expect the Start Menu (similar to Windows 10) along with enhancements to the lockscreen of their tablets.

"If you're running Windows RT, your device won't upgrade to Windows 10. We will have an update available in September 2015 that will improve the Start menu and lock screen. Check Windows Update on your Windows RT device to make sure it is ready to download the update when available", states Microsoft's official FAQ section, with regard to users of Windows RT having to upgrade to Windows 10.

Microsoft's official statement above suggests that the Windows RT 8.1 update iteration can be expected in September this year. Winbeta believes that the September update hinted at by Microsoft is the Windows RT 8.1 Update 3.

Users can check out for the new Start Menu and updated lockscreen, upon installing Microsoft's September Windows RT update.
