Microsoft introduced Windows 11, the next major Windows update, back in June, and also released the early build through Windows Insider Program soon after. At that time, it said that the stable version will be available this holiday. Today it was confirmed that it will start rolling out for eligible devices starting from October 5th.
As announced earlier, this will be a free upgrade to Windows 10 users, but it will be a phased roll-out which the company says is measured with a focus on quality. All eligible devices will get the Windows 11 update by mid-2022.
