Microsoft Changes Update Schedule, Windows 12 Could Arrive in 2024

Microsoft is rearranging when new versions of Windows will be released. Soon after deciding to release a feature update once a year, the corporation is now thinking about doing it every three years.

Given the performance problems and glitches that commonly plagued earlier versions, the recent switch from a twice-a-year cycle to one substantial upgrade was mainly well-received.

Microsoft is currently allowing itself more time to release "major" updates while continuing to add new features to the current Windows version.

By extending the interval between feature releases to three years, Microsoft will have more time to resolve any problems before releasing an upgrade that, for example, crashes printers.

Three years after Windows 11's debut, in 2024, the following update is apparently planned. Therefore, contrary to earlier rumours, the (codename) Sun Valley 3 client update won't be released in 2019.

Although Windows customers may complain about the longer wait for big upgrades, it's crucial to note that Microsoft plans to speed up feature drops.

According to reports, the modifications will begin with Windows 11 version 22H2, also known as Sun Valley 2, which will carry on the introduction of new features outside of significant OS releases.

It's unclear if Windows 10 will be affected by the modifications. Offering more features that are special to Windows 11 may persuade organisations and people to choose the newest OS version.

If or when Microsoft decides to announce this new release method to the public, it will hopefully make things obvious. If the business only releases a significant update every three years
