Microsoft might at last shorten the names of its Windows 11 updates
Microsoft might at last shorten the names of its Windows 11 updates may be getting ready to refer to its upcoming significant OS version as the “Windows 11 2022 Update.” Near-final versions of the upcoming significant Windows 11 update, known as 22H2, make reference to this name. The Windows 11 2022 Update name was discover by Twitter user XenoPanther in the Get Start software that displays when you configure a new PC.
It’s possible that the name is merely a placeholder or that Microsoft is finally streamlining its frequently imprecise update names for Windows. Over the years, a variety of names have been used for major Windows 10 updates, including the Creators Update, the more unremarkable Windows 10 May 2021 Update, and most recently, the Windows 10 21H2 designation.
Microsoft had thought of giving its software update names based on animals or people, but instead switched to the safer monthly naming scheme rather than point releases, as Apple did with iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and many other updates to its operating system. If Microsoft intends to provide fewer major feature drops, a switch to only the yearly name for Windows 11 updates might make sense.
According to a recent story, Microsoft has abandoned plans to release a “23H2” annual update for Windows 11 in 2023 in favor of focusing on releasing new features all year long. Microsoft has modify its Windows Insider program, adding more experiments and early-stage prototype features that are being evaluate. With a new major version (Windows 12?) slated for 2024 as a result of these changes, Microsoft may decide to return to a three-year release cycle for Windows.
Still, I would rather Microsoft switch to Windows 11.1 or 11.2 with its significant upgrades. It is simpler to figure out what the most recent update is and to comprehend whether your computer or laptop is current or whether you need to wait for Microsoft or your OEM to approve the newest components.
In any case, a week after the company’s regular Patch Tuesday repairs, Microsoft is schedule to release its next significant Windows 11 upgrade on September 20.
