    If you recently acquired a Windows 10 machine, you should be able to upgrade to Windows 11 now if you’re impatient.

    For everyone else, Windows 11 will be released gradually. According to Microsoft, existing Windows 10 devices that are eligible for the Windows 11 upgrade will be able to upgrade starting today, but most new hardware will receive the upgrade immediately.

    According to Microsoft, all qualifying Windows 10 devices will receive the Windows 11 upgrade by mid-2022.

    You may check if the Windows 11 update is available in the Windows Update section of the Windows 10 settings, or you can skip the wait and upgrade right away with Microsoft’s new Installation Assistant.

    Windows 11 features a new user interface, a revised Start menu, a redesigned Microsoft Store, Widgets, Microsoft Teams integration, and other enhancements.

    The new Surface devices, along with new PCs and laptops from Asus, Lenovo, and HP, will go on sale on October 5th with Windows 11 pre-installed. Other PC manufacturers, such as Acer, Dell, and Samsung, will also release new Windows 11 PCs in the near future.
