Windows 11 21H2 will stop supporting in October, users should upgrade as soon as possible
Recently, Microsoft elegantly conveyed a salient message via their Health Control Center: With just over a month left before the cessation of support for Windows 11 Version 21H2, they fervently entreat users still tethered to this iteration to promptly ascend to the 22H2 version.
Indeed, as early as July this year, Microsoft had promulgated the impending discontinuation of services for Windows 11 Version 21H2, slated for October 10th. This edict envelops the Home, Professional, Workstation, and Education Professional editions. However, the Enterprise, Education, IoT Enterprise, and Multi-Session Enterprise renditions are bestowed an extended grace period, stretching until October 8th, 2024.
Since its grand unveiling in October 2021, Windows 11, with its sprightly animations, meticulously crafted controls, and harmoniously streamlined vector icons, has thoroughly beguiled the aesthetically inclined. As the inaugural formal release, Version 21H2, having undergone rigorous refinements, might be perceived by some users as possessing superior stability compared to subsequent iterations. Some may contemplate upgrading only once the newer versions exhibit robust stability, while others might defer updates, either to conserve the time expended in the update process or to sidestep potential post-update snags.
From Microsoft’s vantage point, to fortify users against vulnerabilities and optimize productivity, Windows updates will commence autonomously for Windows 11 consumer devices and unmanaged business apparatuses. Such devices are slated to complete the transition several months before the termination of service. This ensures that these devices remain perpetually under Microsoft’s aegis, imbibing vital monthly updates pivotal for security and ecosystem health. Users, for their part, are granted the latitude to select an opportune juncture for their devices to rejuvenate with the completed update.
