Windows 11 free update will not reach all devices! .. Find out why
List of devices that will get Windows 11 for free
Earlier, Microsoft said that the date of October 5, 2021 is the date of the release of Windows 11, however, it appears that the free update may be delayed until the middle of next year to support all devices.
Obviously, Microsoft won’t release the free update all at once on October 5, and will continue to roll between PCs until all are supported. This is taking into account that they fulfill all the requirements imposed.
It’s unfortunate that the majority of people who are excited about Windows 11 may have to wait until mid-2022 for their device to be supported. Meanwhile, head of marketing for Windows, Aaron Woodman, explains that the upgrade will arrive first for new PCs designed to support Windows 11.
Based on this, new devices are likely to receive the update quickly, and you may want to know the expected list of new devices that will receive the free update first:
- Acer Swift 5
- Acer Swift X
- Asus Zenbook Flip 13 OLED
- Asus Zenbook 14
- Alienware X15
- Alienware X17
- Dell XPS 13
- HP Specter x360 14
- HP Envy x360 15
- Lenovo Yoga 7
- Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro
- Samsung Galaxy Book Pro
- Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360
- Microsoft’s own Surface Pro 7
- Surface Laptop 4
Although Microsoft did not explain much, but said that new devices will receive the update first, and it is expected that this will happen up to 4 weeks to fully support the new devices, and then support for old devices will start until mid-2022.
