Windows 11 Free Upgrades Won't Arrive Until Next Year

Microsoft announced Windows 11 last Thursday, and added that eligible Windows 10 devices would receive a free upgrade. While Windows 11 is slated to launch later this year, users who hope to get it by way of a free upgrade will need to wait until 2022.

Responding to a user on Twitter, the official Windows account confirmed that Windows 11 will launch later this year and will be "delivered" over the next several months. However, active and eligible devices will receive the Windows 11 upgrade "through the first half" of 2022.

While this may not be ideal for people eager to use Windows 11 as soon as it is released, this does make sense in some regard – Windows 10 users eligible for the upgrade will receive Windows 11 on their PCs as if it were a Windows 10 update.

There is also the possibility that some bugs and issues may appear on Windows 11 at release. Waiting to roll out free upgrades would give Microsoft the time to address any problems before rolling out the free upgrade. The computing giant did something similar in 2018 when it delayed its October update by a month after some users who installed the update reported losing files.

To receive a free upgrade to Windows 11, PC owners need Windows 10 installed on their PC and must meet the minimum requirements needed to run the forthcoming Windows OS, such as having a Windows 10 computer that features a 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

Maybe a goo thing for a while at least. Work out some of the bugs.
