Microsoft has started rolling out the Windows 10 May 2021 Update (21H1). Though the update is considered functional, it does not bring any significant innovations. It will soon be available to all users of compatible devices.
As expected, Windows 10 (21H1) is not bringing significant changes, but it will not do without updates at all. The developers have implemented the ability to use multiple cameras in Windows Hello on the same computer. The performance of Windows Defender Application Guard also becomes better. Improved performance for GPSVC Group Policy and WMI Management Tools. Otherwise, Windows 10 Update (21H1) contains general fixes and improvements to improve system stability.
In the past, Microsoft released a major functional update for Windows 10 in the first half of the year, followed by a minor fix pack. This year, the developers have taken a different path and a less significant update has become public now, and a more significant update will appear later this year.
The larger Windows 10 update (21H2) with the code name “Sun Valley”, will launch in the second half of the year. We expect it to bring with it not only new features, but also a massive update to the user interface of the software platform. We assume that the Windows 10 update (21H2) will be available to users in October-November this year.
Meanwhile, Microsoft today confirmed that it will no longer release the much-awaited Windows 10X. The OS was originally to ship alongside dual-screen computers like the canceled Microsoft Surface Neo.
