    Windows 10 for Phone to have innovative Mixview Live Tiles


    When it comes to Windows 10 on PC, much is already known in terms of enterprise design and features. After all, there is a public preview of Windows 10, which is downloadable to any laptop or PC right now. Still, the consumer end of Windows 10 is mostly a mystery at this time. Microsoft reportedly will detail more on that facet early next year.

    Another unclear aspect is in regards to the Windows Phone UI. Although Windows 10 spans across PC, laptop, tablet, phone and even the Xbox One, it is not clear what, if any, changes it brings to the Start screen, especially on the phone.

    Windows Central has been able to confirm with multiple sources that 'flyout tiles', also known as Mixview, will return to Windows Phone. Such a feature is returning because the concept was originally designed for the 3D Touch system that was to premiere with 'McLaren'.

    I'm sure 'flyout tiles' are lovely and all, but allowing non-corporate users to enable Bitlocker device encryption would be a whole lot more useful.

    I thought anyone could use bitlocker from Windows 7 and up.

    BitLocker is a default enabled feature on ALL Windows Phones. There's not a lot of configurability to it.

    The MixView live tiles is something I hope to see on every Windows device, that's just freaking neat!

    They introduced folder tiles in 8.1. Wonder why they didn't make it MixView right away since it was in Zune. Looks so much more Modern.
