The Windows 10 “IoT” editions are available in several versions to fit specific types of embedded and IoT devices. The Enterprise editions are based on Windows 10 Enterprise but provide many additional features focused on OEMs building IoT devices. The differences between the versions are centered on usage and licensing terms.

Based on the full version of Windows 10 Enterprise, the IoT LTSC edition changes the license terms to focus on OEMs that build dedicated appliances and the Long Term Service Channel provides for 10 years of support while locking into a single build version of Windows 10. OEMs no longer need to worry about new features or new builds of Windows 10 being pushed to the device which could in some cases cause a problem with their appliance. This gives OEMs full control over Windows updates and simplifies the support for systems. Further, the cost can be lowered based on the processor model, allowing lower performing devices to have a lower cost.
