Microsoft has confirmed Windows 10 version 21H1, and one of the things that not everybody anticipated may be the way it’ll be shipped.
Version 21H1 won’t be considered a major update, but a smaller release much like version 20H2, so it’ll are available in the type of a quality update published on Windows Update. Many call this a service pack-like approach, as well as in some regards, it truly is, especially because the focus is on improving the performance from the operating-system and less on new features.
But based on John Cable, Vice President, Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery, Microsoft can also be focusing on a set of new features which will come to users in version 21H1, and they are all based on feedback.
“Windows 10, version 21H1 will have a scoped group of features improving security, remote access and quality. The features we’re releasing in this update are centered on the core experiences that customers have told us they’re relying on most at this time. So, we optimized this release to aid our customers’ most pressing needs,” Cable said.
All eyes now on Windows 10 version 21H2
Quite simply, Microsoft will focus on multicamera support for Windows Hello along with other security patches, including the following:
Windows Hello multicamera support to create the default as the external camera when both bodily and mental Windows Hello cameras are present.
Windows Defender Application Guard performance improvements including optimizing document opening scenario times.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) updating performance improvement to aid remote work scenarios.
Windows 10 version 21H1 will thus be considered a rather light release, so now everybody is waiting for the 21H2 feature update due within the fall with so many more improvements, including a large amount of additional features that will represent a significant overhaul towards the Windows 10 experience.
