How to Upgrade to Windows 11

How to Get and When to Upgrade to Windows 11 – It may take months before you can install the OS via Windows Update.

Windows 11 is out, and Microsoft has detailed how the rollout and stages will work. The first systems that will get the Windows 11 operating system are new preloaded devices. Starting October 5, Microsoft will initially offer free upgrades to new PCs, laptops, and tablets that ship with Windows 10.

Furthermore, Microsoft says it will first look at the feasibility of hardware, reliability metrics, and other factors on existing Windows 10 devices. That is to determine when Microsoft should offer you the latest OS via Windows Update.

This is similar to how the company (Microsoft) has handled feature updates on Windows 10 for years. You can find out if your device is compatible using the PC Health Check app.

Microsoft will notify you when Windows 11 is ready for your system via the Windows Update Settings page or when you check for updates. Although, you may have to wait. The company (Microsoft) expects to offer upgrades to all eligible Windows 10 devices by mid-2022.

Recommended Upgrade Method

Windows Update is Microsoft’s recommended Windows 11 upgrade method and is likely the easiest for most people. However, if you want, you can install the OS manually. You can download the Installation Assistant or use the installation ISO.

Microsoft doesn’t recommend that you install Windows 11 on devices that do not meet system requirements, but you can still do so. It should be noted that you may not get the Windows 11 update on PCs with unsupported processors.

Conclusion

Whichever you decide to switch to Windows 11, it’s probably best to back up all your files first. The OS is likely stable at this point, but there’s no point in risking that something will go wrong and cause you to lose important data.

Meanwhile, Microsoft said today marks the start of the 24-month life cycle for Windows 11 Home and Pro editions and the start of 36 months of service support for the Enterprise and Education versions.
