Incredible Connection will offer free assistance to upgrade to Windows 10 when Microsoft launches the latest version of its operating system on 29 July 2015.
Free installation applies only to compatible devices bought from Incredible Connection – a service fee will be charged for devices not purchased from the company.
The initiative forms part of an upgrade drive from Microsoft, which has partnered with a number of retailers to introduce upgrade programmes around the world.
Microsoft said it will hold special events in 13 cities around the world to celebrate those who participated in the Windows Insider programme and helped test Windows 10.
These special events will be held in Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi, Dubai, Nairobi, Berlin, Johannesburg, Madrid, London, Sao Paolo, and New York City.
“These celebrations will offer hands-on opportunities, experiential demos, entertainment, and opportunities to meet the Windows team,” said Microsoft.
Free upgrades to Windows 10 will be available to existing users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
According to reports, the price for Windows 10 will keep the same pricing structure as Windows 8.1.
- Windows 8.1: R1,540
- Windows 8.1 Pro: R2,630
- Windows 8.1 Pro Student Offer: R480
