Microsoft revealed today that it has finalized Windows 10 version 21H2 and will soon offer it to existing users.
“We are preparing the Windows 10 November 2021 Update ([which will upgrade users to] Windows 10 version 21H2) for release,” Microsoft announced to Insiders for some reason. “We believe that build 19044.1288 is the final build for [Windows 10 version 21H2], and the ISO for [Windows 10 version 21H2] can be downloaded here. We will continue to improve the overall experience of the November 2021 Update on customers’ PCs through our usual servicing cadence.”
Windows 10 version 21H2 is just a cumulative update and is not a major version upgrade, similar to the previous several versions of Windows 10. It includes no major new features or changes.
Insiders who wish to upgrade to Windows 10 version 21H2 now can do so via the Release Preview channel, but you will need to manually check for updates to be offered the update. Once you have upgraded, you will automatically receive new servicing updates through Windows Update via the normal monthly update process.
