A few days ago, Microsoft VP Joe Belfiore has verified the reports that Windows 10S will no longer be a standalone software. As the company allows users to use this platform as a “mode” within existing full Windows 10 installations.
Microsoft designed Windows 10 S to give a tough competition to its one of the biggest competitor Chrome OS, which is a lightweight, more powerful and even more secure operating system.
We use Win10S as an option for schools or businesses that want the 'low-hassle'/ guaranteed performance version. Next year 10S will be a "mode" of existing versions, not a distinct version. SO … I think it's totally fine/good that it's not mentioned.

But, the company missed something that they desired to implement in the Windows 10 S. Therefore, the company made it compulsory for users to get a copy of Windows 10 Pro if they want to use Windows 10 S.
The company is yet to post more details about this. According to the rumors, S Mode will be accessible on all versions of Windows excluding the Core+ and Workstation.
Therefore, the cost will also increase if the user upgraded from S mode to full access depending on the current version of Windows a user is running. For some users, it will be free but, for others they would have to pay a fee of $49.
Well, we donot have any officila statement about the release of this new version in Windows 10. But, according to a tweet from Belfiore, it can take place “next year”, so we will update you here once we get some details about the release date.
