It looks like the Windows 11 release date will be sooner than we first thought
Microsoft’s Windows 11 public beta will be here any day now, with the full release happening sometime later this year.
Nearly six years after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has finally revealed Windows 11, which has a cleaner Mac-like design and a host of new features.
Windows 11 will be available as a free download for existing Windows users during the 2021 holiday season, according to a Microsoft blog posted after the default announcement event. However, new evidence suggests that the update may actually arrive earlier. (Here’s how to download Windows 11 as soon as it’s available, and everything you need to know about Windows 11.)
The free upgrade will be rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PCs around the holidays (which suggests November or December), and will run until 2022, the post said.
No specific date has been announced. But it looks like Microsoft and laptop retailers may be hinting at an earlier release: October.
During the Windows 11 reveal event, a Microsoft Teams message popped up on the demo screen saying “Excited to turn it into 11…Can’t wait for October!” The Verge noted that several of the Windows 11 press images include the October 20 date in the taskbar.
Additionally, the Walmart website lists a “free upgrade to Windows October 2021 when available” on certain laptops.
