Windows 11 may still smell like that new operating system, but there’s still work to be done. We already know that Microsoft only plans to update one feature per year, and it looks like the first major update for Windows 11 – codenamed Sun Valley 2 – could be ready for testing in the near future. Next few months.
Windows 11 22H2, also known as Sun Valley 2, is expected to be completed in May. The update is expected to be finalized some time in the summer and then be ready for full release. enough in the fall. But what can we expect in this release?
On Windows Central, Zac Bowden’s source said that “the current technical schedule has mainline development on version 22H2 scheduled for completion in May 2022”. The update is described as “perfecting” the operating system, adding features that aren’t quite ready for the release of Windows 11 by the end of 2021.
This includes expanding support for system-wide dark mode and adding support for third-party extensions. Other changes and improvements expected to come include adding new functionality to the taskbar – possibly making the taskbar more flexible in terms of docking and possibly adding drag and drop support back – and update some built-in apps like Notepad.
Rumors suggest that Windows 11’s Mail and Calendar apps are set to be replaced with a new Outlook app now known as Project Monarch. We can also expect to see Microsoft continue to trim the Control Panel as the migration to the Settings app progresses.
