Microsoft will change the frequency of Windows 10 and Windows 11 updates

Microsoft is preparing to change the update cycle of its operating systems again. The Redmond giant, according to Windows Central, will release new versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11 (also called feature updates) once every three years.

However, we wouldn’t have to wait that long for the new features that have been cooking in the Windows Insider program, such as ripping audio CD content and search highlights. These will arrive through several parallel updates. Let’s see.

Microsoft will change the frequency of Windows 10 and Windows 11 updates

Traditionally, Windows 10 received two feature updates per year, but with the arrival of Windows 11, Microsoft decided to implement the same cycle in its two active operating systems: that is, they would receive one major update per year.

Now, with the supposed new roadmap, these systems would move to a feature update cadence with longer lead times starting in 2023. As we mentioned above, they would receive a major update once every three years with the OS changing version (it will not be a new operating system).

For example, the expected new versions Windows 10 22H2 and Windows 11 22H2 ‘Sun Valley 2’ that have not yet been released. In this case, these will not yet be governed by the new update scheme, but will arrive to prepare the ground for Microsoft to implement new feature updates throughout the year.

It should be noted that Microsoft has not implemented any changes when it comes to its quality updates. These, also known as ‘Patch Tuesdays,’ continue to ship monthly to Windows 10 and Windows 11 and include enhancements to features already installed, bug fixes, and resolutions to security issues.
