Windows AutoPilot is a new suite of capabilities powered by cloud-based services, designed to make it easier to deploy and manage new Windows 10 PCs. It also includes Mobile Device Management enahancements and new Device Health features in Windows Analytics.

According to the Windows Blog Windows AutoPilot will allow devices to be pre-allocated to specific people and, using a cloud service, offer self-service joining to Active Directory domains and other device management options.

The new Device Health featuresl looks interesting as it identifies issues that could impact a user’s experience.

AutoPilot is currently being rolled out as a beta with broad deployment later this year as part of the Windows 10 Creators Update Fall Update.
