Despite all the speculations that Windows 12 is coming soon especially with Microsoft’s rapid push for Copilot, a recent post at Windows Insider Blog basically confirmed that 2024 will still focus on Windows 11.
This denotes that Windows 11, version 24H2 will be this year’s annual feature update. As mentioned here, Windows 11 will have an annual feature update cadence that releases in the second half of the calendar year.
This means that Microsoft will still be introducing new features to Windows 11, and that means all of the groundbreaking AI features will still be under the current Windows version. This also implies that Windows 12 might debut in 2025 or later–which is understandable since Windows 11 made its debut in 2021.
- Windows 11 Can Now Officially Run On MacBook M1 and M2
- Windows 11 Adds Support for RAR: WinRAR No Longer Needed
- You Can No Longer Activate Windows 11 with a Windows 7 Key
A 2025 launch date for Windows 12 is plausible, as Microsoft previously confirmed that Windows 10 will reach end of support (EOS) on October 14, 2025.
As for updates to Windows 11, we expect Microsoft to expand Copilot features to its current operating system, where it aims to improve user experience. Some of these new Copilot features include opening the app by just dragging images onto the Copilot icon.
We expect Microsoft to reveal more details about Windows 11 24H2 in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to know the other new features that will arrive.
