Microsoft announced Windows 11 last week, saying that some Windows 10 devices will receive a free upgrade. Windows 11 will be released later this year, but the free upgrades won’t be available until 2022.
In response to Twitter, the official Windows account has confirmed that Windows 11 will be available later this year. Despite that, the first upgrades to Windows 11 will be rolled out “from the first half in 2022”.
It is also possible that many bugs and problems surface with the launch of Windows 11. Waiting to roll out the update can fix these types of problems. The company did something similar in 2018. Then an update was delayed because users reported files disappearing after an update.
To get the free upgrade to Windows 11, PC users must have Windows 10 installed on the device. In addition, the minimum system requirements must be met. A Windows 10 computer must have a 64-bit processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB storage.
