Windows 11 version 22H2 enters the Release Preview channel as public release approaches

Windows 11 version 22H2 has recently entered Microsoft’s Release Preview channel for Windows Insiders, the organization declared today. The Release Preview channel is the last stop before public release for most Windows updates, excepting unexpected show-stopping bugs, and it gives developers, businesses, and fans an opportunity to take new updates for a twist before broad accessibility.

Microsoft sticks to a less inflexible schedule than it used to with regards to pushing out new apps, UI refinements, and minor feature improvements to Windows 11. The operating system has gotten a stream of continuous tweaks and app updates since it came out last October, including an especially important batch of updates for February. Yet, the 22H2 update incorporates all the more wide-ranging upgrades, a new Microsoft account sign-in requirement for new Windows 11 Pro installs, new default security settings, and different changes.

Microsoft’s support timetable for Windows updates is likewise attached to these yearly Windows updates. Security updates for Windows 11 version 21H1 might be given until October 2023, for example — if you want to continue to get security updates, you’ll ultimately have to install version 22H2.

Windows 11 22H2 is pushing toward release, however we’ve actually heard barely anything about Windows 10 version 22H2 (a Microsoft rep let Ars know that the organization had “nothing to share at this time”). Windows 10 will keep on getting once-yearly updates for essentially the next few years, yet since the organization hasn’t been issuing new Insider works of Windows 10, we don’t have the foggiest idea how huge these updates will be. Windows 10 will keep on being support in some fashion until basically October 2025, which will be significant for the PCs that don’t officially support Windows 11.
