The current version ‘22H2’, will be its last before reaching the end of support (EOS) on October 14, 2025. Which means that there will be no release of version 23H2 this first half of 2023.

Since the launch of Windows 11 in 2021, Microsoft have been only providing minor updates to Windows 10, with version 22H2 offering no new features and only bug fixes.

Moving forward, Microsoft will provide monthly security updates and bug fixes to Windows 10 version 22H2 until its EOS on October 14, 2025.

Beyond this date, Microsoft will encourage users to upgrade to a newer version of Windows, likely Windows 11 or Windows 12.

However, upgrading to a newer version may require purchasing a new PC because of Windows 11’s strict system requirements including an Intel 8th-gen or AMD Zen 2 CPU and above, TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) support, and at least 4GB RAM, 64GB storage.

Microsoft has also announced that the next version of Windows LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel) will ship in the second half of 2024, in line with the expected release of the next major version of the Windows platform.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
