Whereas a lot of the Home windows bulletins this 12 months have centered round Home windows 11, the subsequent function replace for Home windows 10 has been within the works, too. Till in the present day, July 28, Microsoft officers had mentioned little publicly about Home windows 10 22H2, however as of now, it’s rolling out to testers within the near-final Launch Preview channel.
Microsoft is rolling out the primary preview construct of Home windows 10 22H2, which is Construct 19045.1865 (KB501878). These within the Home windows Insider Program for Enterprise who’re on “industrial units” configured for the Launch Preview channel or Home windows Replace for Enterprise insurance policies may have Home windows 10 22H2 made accessible robotically to them. It will likely be designated as an elective replace to Home windows 10. Industrial units are these not working Home windows 10 Residence; that are managed by an IT admin through Microsoft Endpoint Supervisor or different administration merchandise; or which have a quantity license key or industrial ID or are joined to a website.
Particular person within the Insider program who’re within the Launch Preview Channel who do not qualify for this computerized supply also can choose to hunt out this new construct by going to Setting and Home windows Replace and downloading and putting in Home windows 10 22H2.
Microsoft officers haven’t offered a listing of latest options or fixes that might be in Home windows 10 22H2. I requested in the present day to see if there is a record someplace. No phrase again to date. Most firm watchers assume Home windows 10 22H2 might be a really minor replace to Home windows 10 and sure delivered through an enablement bundle, which means those that are on the latest Home windows 10 launch will be capable of get 22H2 rapidly and simply — as if it had been an everyday Cumulative Replace. Once more, I requested Microsoft in the event that they’d say this publicly. No phrase again to date.
Microsoft officers haven’t mentioned when to count on Home windows 10 22H2 (or Home windows 11 22H2, for that matter) to begin rolling out to the mainstream. Home windows 11 22H2 went to the Launch Preview channel in early June Rumor has it that each of those releases are coming this fall, probably September or October.
Microsoft officers haven’t offered numbers relating to what number of PC customers are presently working Home windows 11. Earlier this 12 months, they did say 1.4 billion month-to-month energetic customers are working both Home windows 10 or 11. The overwhelming majority of those are believed to be on Home windows 10.
After this 12 months’s promised single function replace for Home windows 10 and Home windows 11, Microsoft could also be altering its plans for when and the way it delivers new options for Home windows 11. Officers haven’t mentioned something publicly about this, however in keeping with a latest report, Microsoft could also be going to an every-three-year launch cycle for “main” new variations of Home windows beginning in 2024 and delivering smaller function updates as much as 4 occasions per 12 months in between.
