Windows 10’s next update sets the stage for Windows 11.
We can already sense that the transition from Windows 10 to Windows 11 is going to be complex. Microsoft indeed imposes a fairly strict minimum configuration to be able to update a PC to Windows 11. An installation outside the nails will not guarantee to have security updates.
Since the company does not seem ready to change its position, it is now making efforts to clarify whether a PC can be updated to Windows 11.
A new function for Windows 10 21H2
Microsoft will offer an application to check whether or not your PC is compatible with the new system. In addition to this application, the firm will also integrate verification directly into Windows Update.
From the 21H2 update which will be released at the end of the year on Windows 10, Windows Update will indicate whether or not a PC is compatible with Windows 11. The 21H2 update is already available for testing in the Windows program Insider, Release Preview channel.
The message also contains links that refer to Microsoft support sites to explain the configuration required by Windows 11 and the new features of the system.
