The upcoming Windows update is coming with various new features from the taskbar to Copilot. The upcoming upgrade will focus on Microsoft’s vision to improve AI features. Know what the Windows 11 24H2 version has in store for users.

Microsoft said, “Starting with Build 26-xx today, Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev Channels will see the versioning updated under Settings > System > About (and winver) to version 24H2. 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.”

The Windows 11 24H2 is expected to roll out in the second half of 2024, in September or October. This announcement from Microsoft may result in a delay with Windows 12 for which the users are actively waiting, however, we may expect an update soon from the company by the end of the year. Therefore, Microsoft may be saving the big Windows update for 2025 or maybe later even after groundbreaking AI announcements from leading chipset-makers in the market.
