Windows 10 Major Upgrade To Start Coming Once In A Year

Microsoft is preparing to release the traditional autumn update of its operating system, tentatively called Windows 10 20H2. After that, the release of the traditional spring update, was expected to be called 21H1. However, information that has appeared online has revealed that Microsoft is now seriously considering a new schedule for OS updates.

The report was made known by WindowsLatest with reference to its own sources.

The new Windows 10X platform was originally supposed to go to the final stage of RTM (Release To Manufacturers) in the fall of 2020. And for Windows 10 21H1, a similar version of RTM was to be prepared in the spring of 2021. However, the release of Windows 10X was postponed, we will not see this platform until April-May 2021.

In this light, Microsoft has decided to postpone the spring update of standard Windows 10 to a later date. According to the source, with a high probability, there will be no “spring release” of Windows 10 at all. And Microsoft will switch to Windows 10 updates once a year instead of the previous releases twice a year.

As a result, the so-called version 21H1 (stands for the first half of 2021) will be released already under the guise of 21H2 (second half of 2021). But with the same functions and innovations that should have arrived to ordinary users with the spring release of Windows 10.

The bottom line is as follows. Microsoft will release the first preview of the new modular Windows 10X for single-screen devices in Q2 2021, with Windows 10X for dual-screen devices expected later. In the second half of 2021, Microsoft will release a major functional update 21H1 / 21H2 for the standard Windows 10 OS.
