As technology enthusiasts eagerly await the next major update to Microsoft's operating system, Windows 11, anticipation mounts for the array of innovative features and enhancements it promises to bring. Windows 11 update 2024 is scheduled for release in the second half of 2024. Dubbed as Windows 11 version 24H2, or the Microsoft Windows 11 2024 Update, it is widely expected to redefine the Windows experience with groundbreaking advancements across various aspects of the platform.

Release Schedule and Platform Transition

The launch of Windows 11 version 24H2 is slated for the latter half of 2024, with general availability expected around September, as reported by XDA.

Widespread availability for users will likely be in September.

Free Upgrade and Hardware Compatibility

Continuing its trend of delivering free software updates, Microsoft ensures that Windows 11 version 24H2 will be available at no cost for existing Windows 11 users. While the core system requirements are anticipated to remain unchanged, certain new features may necessitate specific hardware capabilities, particularly those leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) functionalities - for instance, the automatic "super resolution" feature tailored for gaming.
