Fewer Feature Updates, Longer Support

Microsoft has promised annual features updates for Windows 11, down from the twice-a-year update cadence for Windows 10. Solution providers have told CRN that this will be a welcome move for partners and customers, reducing the burden involved with frequent major OS updates.

The Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and Pro Education editions of Windows 11 have 24 months of support from the general availability date, while Enterprise, IoT Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 11 are supported for 36 months.

Windows 10 Enterprise, Education, IoT Enterprise, Pro, Pro Education, Pro for Workstations and Home editions, however, have 18 months of support, by comparison, according to Microsoft.

Devices on in-service versions of Windows 10 will receive monthly Windows 10 security updates and incremental improvements through October 2025, according to Microsoft.

Originally released in July 2015, the end-of-support date for Windows 10 would give the operating system just over a 10-year run.
