Microsoft today announced that the Microsoft Store is now accepting app submissions built for the 64-bit ARM (ARM64) architecture.

Also, with the release of Visual Studio 2017 version 15.9 this week, developers can now create ARM64 apps using officially supported SDK and tools.

(Don’t confuse the Microsoft Store with Microsoft’s physical retail stores.

Microsoft rebranded the Windows Store as the Microsoft Store in October 2017.)

Microsoft announced Windows 10 on ARM in December 2017 with three big feature promises: The screen turns on “instantly,” unlike existing PCs; LTE is built right in; and the battery can last for days.

But the unveiling came with a big caveat.
