While we wait for the global launch of Windows 11 later this year, Microsoft has revealed some interesting information regarding the update cycle of its new operating system version ahead of the official rollout.
According to an IndianExpress report, the American tech giant has promised that the new Windows 11 OS will get one new version update every year. Notably, this is down from two major software releases that the company rolled out each year for Windows 10. In other words, Windows 11 will be getting updates less frequently compared to the current OS version, although, this might also lead to a lesser number of bugs making theirs through each update.
Furthermore, the new Windows 11 updates might arrive along with new Windows 10 updates during the fall of each year. Microsoft also added that it will support each version of Windows 11 Pro, Windows 11 Pro Education, Windows 11 Pro for Workstations, and Windows 10 Home for 24 months after the initial release. After this two-year period, however, users will be required to upgrade to continue receiving more security updates. On the other hand, the Windows 11 Enterprise, Windows 11 Education, and Windows 11 IoT Enterprise will have a 36 month long support period.
Interestingly, Microsoft will continue to support Windows 10 for now and has promised to offer support for Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Pro Education, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, and Windows 10 Home for another 18 months.
