Windows 11 will be available on October 5th

On Tuesday, August 31, Microsoft said that Windows 11, the latest version of its Windows operating system, would be available on October 5.

Windows 11 is a free upgrade from Windows 10, and it will be available as the operating system for new PCs in October.

According to Aaron Woodman, general manager for Windows marketing, the launch will have its cadence, with new eligible devices receiving the upgrade first, followed by a staggered rollout to other suitable devices, based on “intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, age of the device, and other factors that impact the upgrade experience.”

By mid-2022, all eligible devices should be able to upgrade to Windows 11, with Windows Update advising consumers of the software’s availability.

Individuals who want to check out the system requirements for Windows 11 before upgrading can do so here.

While users can update unsupported computers to Windows 11 when released, The Verge notes that doing so may result in an unsupported Windows 11 state, which means a significant lack of security updates and fixes.

Unfortunately, the Android Apps integration with Windows 11 will be lacking during this launch window.

Microsoft, according to Woodman, is “continuing our path to bring Android apps to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store through our relationship with Amazon and Intel; this will begin with a preview for Windows Insiders in the coming months.”
