Microsoft has announced when Windows 11 will be released and its phased roll out will commence from October 5th. The free upgrade to Windows 11 will begin rolling out to eligible Windows 10 PC’s. PC’s and devices that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 will become available for purchase in stores and online.
This free upgrade will be phased and measured focusing on quality. New eligible devices will be offered the upgrade first, then it’ll roll out over time to other eligible devices, based on intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, age of device and other factors that impact the upgrade experience. Microsoft are expecting this to be done by mid 2022.
