Windows 10, when will the next updates come to your PC

Microsoft has announced when the next Windows 10 updates will be released in 2021 and 2020. Here's everything you need to know

Microsoft plans for the future and releases the Windows 10 update schedule. While it is still releasing Windows 10 May Update 2020, the first core update of this year that brought several new features on computers, the Redmond company is already focused on the next steps. The goal is to respond to Apple, which during WWDC 2020 showed one of the most important updates ever for macOS, the operating system of Apple computers.

Microsoft with the last updates has not brought great improvements and in many cases the new features have come into conflict with other programs or tools already present. For this reason, developers are working very early and carefully on the next releases of Windows 10. The first date is set between September and November 2020, when Windows 10 20H2 will be released, already available for users enrolled in Microsoft's beta tester program. Here are all the dates to mark on your calendar for the upcoming Windows 10 updates.

Windows 10, the update calendar

As many of you know, Microsoft releases two core updates every year, followed by many small updates to improve device features and security. In this 2020, the first major update has already arrived in May and is still being released, while the next one is expected between September and November. We already know several things about this update, thanks to the fact that it has recently been published on Windows Insider, the platform where beta testers can try out new features made by Microsoft's developers. Probably the November Update 2020 will simply be a service pack, that is, an update designed to improve the stability of the operating system with a few new features.

With great anticipation have also been set the dates of the updates that will arrive in 2021 and 2022. The Redmond-based company for the moment has only given a rough idea of when the updates might be released. In 2021, the dates set are March-May for the first update and September-November for the second. For 2022, the same timeline: first update in March-May and second update between September and November.

As we've learned over the past few months, the dates could slip a bit based on issues that emerge during testing. On the new features and programs that are expected to arrive in 2021 and 2022, we are groping in the dark, but most likely Microsoft will focus on the user interface.
