Microsoft downgrades Windows 10 to annual updates


In a blog post from yesterday, Microsoft talked about the new November 2021 update for Windows 10 and the future of the OS. The good news is that the company isn’t abandoning Windows 10, but the bad news is it will reduce the frequency of major updates pushed to the OS.

Microsoft to keep updating Windows 10, major updates to be once per year

Microsoft is switching from two updates per year to one so after this November update, the next one will come in Fall 2022. The tech giant is also doing this to be in line with Windows 11 cadence.

Looking ahead, Microsoft says that the older OS will get support until October 14 2025, which means that users should expect three more major updates. Some small bug and security fixes along the way are to be expected as well.
