Windows 11 release date may be as soon as October — here’s why


Windows 11 is in beta now and due for a full release by the end of this year, according to Microsoft, but the company has so far been cagey about providing a specific release date. 

However, there’s good reason to believe it could be as soon as October, because Microsoft has specifically told its hardware partners (via its Windows 11 driver submission documentation) they can continue to ship systems with factory-installed drivers compatible with the latest version of Windows 10 until September 24th, 2021.
