This week saw relatively little in the way of Microsoft-related news, but the firm continues to push out updates to Windows 10 as we count down to the availability of the next major release, the Anniversary Update.
In fact, the company delivered a couple of updates this week, one for the Windows 10 Mobile version, and the other for PCs that delivered a handy tool to fix problems with activating Windows.
Elsewhere, Microsoft showed off its support for containers at the Dockercon conference, making Docker Datacenter available on Azure among other announcements.
The company also launched an iOS app for the SharePoint collaboration platform, and was one of the firms issuing a last-minute plea for UK voters to remain in the EU - in vain, as we now know.
