November 2021 Update Windows 10 released, rollout Windows 11 accelerated

Microsoft has made the November 2021 Update for Windows 10 available after the release preview that was already available for download a month ago. The rollout will take place in phases and gradually accelerate. In addition, there are some adjustments in the update schedule, including for the LTSC edition and there is news about the rollout of Windows 11.

The latest Windows 10 version is initially available to select users from version 2004 onwards, i.e. 20H1 or 21H1, who can upgrade manually via Windows Update. You can also choose to update directly to Windows 11 if the security update of September 14 has been installed. It is still possible to install Windows 11 on unofficially compatible devices. Microsoft grants itself the right not to provide updates to these computers, although this has not proved to be a problem so far. Windows 10 version 2004 will no longer be supported from December 14, 2021, for the Enterprise and Education editions version 1909, there will be support until May 10, 2022. After that, there will be no monthly security and quality updates.

Windows 10’s release rhythm is aligning with that of Windows 11, with one major new version with new features per year, where there were previously two. Starting with this update, the Semi-Annual Channel will be renamed to General Availability, the next feature update is planned for the second half of 2022. Home and Pro versions will receive 18 months or one and a half years of support for the November 2021 update, for Enterprise and Education, it’s 30 months from today. Until October 14, 2025, at least one version of Windows 10 will retain support, as mentioned earlier.
