Xbox's Phil Spencer announced that the major update will hit consoles starting November 12, bringing a revamped Windows 10 interface and much more.

Cortana on Xbox One unlocked by special key combo

Microsoft has more or less dashed hopes that Cortana will be coming to the Xbox One like an early Christmas gift this November, revealing that Microsoft's AI helper won't be fully activated until early next year. Of course, early testers will be able to get an appetizer before everyone else but, at least for now, even they are locked out of the experience. At least officially.
