Where to from here with Microsoft Windows 10 updates?

It has been over five years since Microsoft launched the original release of Windows 10 and there have been many improvements over this time.

Announced that it would be the “last ever version of Windows”, Microsoft have provided regular Feature Updates, generally a few times a year, bringing new features and enhancements, as well as security and reliability improvements. There has been a constant stream of updates as well, generally released a few times each month, and over time, features too have been removed as Windows 10 increasingly adopting to new technologies.

The version number of such updates has recently been changed, and now based on year and the half. The current release, Windows 10 20H2, represents the second half of 2020. This is now being progressively installed on computer as part of the Windows Updates. The first release for Windows 10 for 2021 will arrive sometime during the first half of this year and is named 21H1.

The most significant updates to Windows are yet to come and likely to arrive in the second half of this year. We understand that will see changes to the look and feel and along with a significant number of new features to take advantage of new technologies.
