How x86 applications work when developed for ARM

All the things I’m going to describe briefly now come from this video from a Windows 10 session on ARM build 2017

These x86 applications now run on an emulation layer. This emulation layer works like magic to invent everything. Code for Kernal, drives and other inbox programs such as Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Store, Calculator, Camera and other preinstalled applications are written for ARM. Other x86 applications like Adobe Photoshop or 7-zip run with a custom Microsoft emulator called WOW or Windows on Windows.

Best part, it can be updated by OEM via Windows Update. read more
