Windows 10 21H1 will be released in the first half of 2021.The 21H1 update for Windows 10 focuses on security improvements and fixes such as the 20H2 update.
The major features originally planned for 21H1 have been postponed to the end of 2021, that is, 21H2.
Another small update for Windows 10
When Microsoft first released Windows 10, the company released two major updates each year packed with new features. Microsoft has moved away from this in recent years. The company is still releasing an important update every six months. However, Microsoft released a new update in the spring that includes a major update full of new features and bug fixes for the winter.
For example, in 2020, the May 2020 Update (20H1) was bigger. This was followed by a smaller October 2020 Update (20H2). But Microsoft is disrupting the order. Instead of following the minor 20H2 update with a larger 21H1 update, a small update will be released in the spring.
In this case, we can expect a big update coming with new features in late 2021. This update will likely be 21H2 and will likely be called the October 2021 update.
Small updates mean less bugs
When it comes to Windows, minor updates aren’t necessarily a bad thing. These small updates mean a much smaller download and the long reboot time that annoying everyone. So they focus on troubleshooting and security.
On the subject, Microsoft Vice President John Cable says; “Windows 10 version 21H1 will have a comprehensive set of features that increase security, remote access and quality. The features we release in this update focus on core experiences that customers say they are most trusted right now. That’s why we’ve optimized this version to meet our customers’ most urgent needs. ”
What’s new in Windows 10 21H1 update?
