Windows 11 will only receive one feature update per year

Almost a couple of weeks have passed since the official announcement, we know many details of Windows 11, but new information about the new home operating system keeps popping up Microsoft. In recent days there has been talk on several occasions of updates and their management, a delicate issue as well as a real Achilles heel of the predecessor W10. An aspect that the software house intends to improve, so as to meet the needs expressed by users.

The first feature update for Windows 11 in the second half of 2022

Two are the most important innovations from this point of view. The first concerns the release cadence of the feature update: one every year. The second, on the other hand, is the distribution of small packages than in the past (up to 40%) and which will therefore require less time and resources for installation. Still, the Redmond group will provide one estimate of the necessary wait to complete the operation, displayed both in Windows Update and in the Start menu when you are about to perform the restart. The calculation is made on the basis of the available hardware sector, taking into account the processor, RAM and storage (the screenshot is from the site Windows Latest).

It should be noted that, despite only one annual feature update (the first is expected in the second half of 2022), Windows 11 will continue to receive the so-called Patch Tuesday and other optional cumulative updates useful for gathering feedback on new features.

The launch date of the operating system has not yet been confirmed, but the clues point towards the October 20, 2021. The upgrade to W11 will then be offered between the end of this year and the middle of next year also to those in possession of a device capable of satisfying certain hardware requirements: to run a test and find out if your PC is compatible, we recommend the third-party tool WhyNoteWin11 which provides detailed information on any compatibility issues.
