Windows 11 will be released on October 5, 2021 for existing and new hardware, and will be available for all eligible devices in mid-2022. Windows 11 version 21H2 is already in the final stages of testing, and the update is expected to be released on the Publications Preview Channel in the coming days.
Microsoft will soon begin releasing Windows 11 on the Release Preview channel as part of a beta testing program. This is the final step in the testing process before the scheduled release on October 5th. You can expect some qualitative improvements and bug fixes in future versions of the pre-release.
Windows 11 will be improved to its peak (hopefully), but no new features will be added. As expected, Microsoft has also postponed support for Android applications for the operating system expected to arrive in 2022. Support for Android applications may be included in Windows 11 version 22H2 “Nicole Which is scheduled for October 2022.
Windows 11 should provide all the features currently available for the Insider beta channel. This includes:
Windows 11 provides a new template for the Start menu, Notification Center, taskbar, search, and more. The new design language promises improvements in accessibility and performance.
New opportunities for developers through the Microsoft Store.
Windows 11 has better touch, stylus, and audio input drivers.
Windows 11 is a free upgrade, with phased deployment beginning October 5th
As you probably know, there were a lot of problems with previous versions of Windows 10.
Not surprisingly, Microsoft is thoroughly testing the new operating system for all supported devices and plans to release the update step-by-step to prevent Windows 10 updates from recurring.
Windows 11 does not ship with unsupported devices. Initially, only valid devices will receive the upgrade, i.e., those that meet all the requirements.
The update will then become available over time on published devices based on smart models that take into account hardware eligibility, reliability settings, device age, and other factors that affect the upgrade experience, Microsoft said.
Microsoft also specifies that all eligible devices will be able to run Windows 11 by mid-2022.
