Microsoft finally announced the Windows 11 release date . The company says that the operating system will begin rolling out on October 5, 2021, so we won’t have to wait much longer to get a finalized version of the operating system.
It’s just a start
Microsoft ad the release date Windows 11 in a blog post, and the company said it will be a gradual rollout. Microsoft said that “the free upgrade to Windows 11 will begin rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs and PCs that come preloaded with Windows 11 will become available for purchase.”
Devices that meet all compatibility requirements will receive the update first. Other devices on the market obtain it later based on intelligence models that they consider hardware eligibility , reliability metrics, device age, and other factors that affect the upgrade experience.
Microsoft says, “We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022.”
If you have a PC that is eligible to update, Windows Update will inform you when it is available to you.
It’s also important to note that some features, like Android apps, will not be available on day one as Microsoft plans to roll out later.
Windows 11 is coming
We finally know when Windows is configured to start. If you’re counting down the days until you get your hands on the latest Windows experience, you won’t have to wait much longer. October 5 is right around the corner, and eligible PCs will be able to install Windows 11 from then on.
