Windows 11 is now available and is optimized for hybrid collaboration, end-user productivity, and security - bringing value and reducing risks to organizations.
Windows 11 is Now Available
As of October 5, 2021, the free upgrade to Windows 11 began rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs, and PCs that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 are available for purchase. Business users are able to treat this like other Windows 10 feature updates. Microsoft expects all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022.
If you have a Windows 10 PC (for home users) eligible for the upgrade, Windows Update will let you know when it's available. You can also check to see if Windows 11 is ready for your device by going to Settings > Windows Update and selecting Check for updates. Feature updates for Windows 11 are now changing to annual instead of Windows 10 twice-annual schedule. Windows 10 will still be supported and receive monthly security updates during this transition. Windows 10 will exit support on October 14, 2025. Windows 11 requirements have changed – notably, a TPM 2.0 hard requirement, only 64 Bit OS support, and a minimum of 64 GB storage is needed.
