Windows 11 22H2 looks like it’s going to be a big update bringing lots of changes and new features to your laptops and PCs – and it looks like we might finally get it in September year 2022.
The Verge reports that sources have told them that “Microsoft is planning to mark Surface’s 10th anniversary with new products this fall and is planning to deliver update 22H2 for Windows 11.” at the end of September”.
We’ve taken a close look at what Windows 11 22H2 will bring, including a new-look Start menu, a better File Explorer with tabs, desktop stickers, and more new features, which many users have requested. ages ago long ago.
However, while we know what Windows 11 22H2 will probably add to our PCs, we are still waiting for the official release date. Because the name suggests it will launch in the second half of 2022, September is always likely, as is October or November, which are months when Microsoft has previously released Windows updates.
So while this is still an unofficial release date (The Verge doesn’t name its sources, so there’s no way to verify the claims), this is the closest we have so far. now and there seems to be no field of possibility.
Windows Insiders, who have signed up to try the early versions of the OS, have been trying out various elements of the update for a while, which tells us what to expect. happen. Some of the latest releases made available to Windows Insiders have also indicated that the update will be available soon.
Analysis: The first major update for Windows 11 could also be its last
Windows 11 22H2 will be Microsoft’s first major update since the operating system’s October 2021 launch – but it could well be the last. New rumors suggest that the next major update for Windows 11, codenamed Sun Valley 3 (Windows 11 22H2 codenamed Sun Valley 2) has indeed been cancelled.
Instead, rumors indicate that Sun Valley 3 features will be rolled out to Windows 11 in smaller updates known as ‘moments’.
Instead of releasing any major Windows 11 updates, Microsoft is also suggesting that Microsoft instead launch Windows 12, which could arrive as early as 2024.
After declaring that Windows 10 would be the final version of Windows, the rapid release of these numbered versions of Windows is a rather daunting start and recalls Microsoft’s rapid Windows release schedule in the middle of the year. to the late 90s and early 2000s.
With Apple switching to an annual numbering scheme, after years of using macOS 10 and preparing to roll out macOS 13 later this year, Microsoft may be concerned that if it fails to comply, its operating system could be damaged. Outdated compared to the competition.
As long as Windows 12 is a free upgrade for Windows 11 users and brings lots of new features, we don’t really care what Microsoft calls it.
For Windows 11 fans (must have some out there), it looks like the upcoming Windows 11 22H2 could be the first and last major update they get.
