Windows 11 release date: Microsoft may just have given a big hint about Windows 11 roll out
The official Windows 11 release date has not been revealed so far, but there are many rumours. Now, Microsoft itself has jumped on that bandwagon and may just have hinted at Windows 11 release date.
Microsoft Windows 11 is shaping up to be one of the biggest upgrades to the company’s popular Windows operating system, with many new features and performance improvements under the hood. Even the old apps have received upgrades and fresh looks to match Windows 11 glitzy avatar. Users are also excited to see new system elements, while others are simply waiting for Android app support. However, one thing that Microsoft has remained tight-lipped about is the actual Windows 11 release date. The company has just refused to mention Windows 11 release date when the public could start downloading the OS.
Microsoft has previously hinted at the Windows 11 release date, during the unveiling of the operating system back in June, all users were told was that it could arrive in the holiday season. Windows 11 launch information was accidentally leaked later in some of Intel’s driver documentation. Now, a report by Windows Latest suggests that Microsoft itself may have hinted at the release schedule for the next version of Windows.

The report states that Microsoft’s documentation for “Windows 11 version 21H2 hardware driver submissions” from June 24, which suggests that the new operating system could arrive between October 2021 and November 2021. This document is used by Microsoft to inform OEMs about the last date for them to submit their drivers in time for the operating system to stick to the planned Windows 11 release date.
According to the report, the Windows creator has informed OEMs that drivers for Windows 11 must be submitted by the end of September. “Partners looking to achieve compatibility for systems shipping with Windows 11, version 21H2 Release may factory-install drivers for components that achieved compatibility with Windows 10, version 2004 until September 24, 2021,” the company states in the document.
However, readers must take all these speculation with a grain of salt, as Microsoft’s plans to release Windows 11 could always change due to technical reasons or something else. Similarly, Microsoft has never mentioned October 2021, and the reference to the holiday could also be in connection with the Christmas holidays. However, based on previous leaks and older posts, it looks like Microsoft may just have made a big revelation.
