At a virtual event on Thursday, Microsoft unveiled the upcoming Windows 11 operating system.
This event marked the first Windows name change in six years. And it comes on the heels of the latest Windows 10 update known as version 21H1.
The upcoming Windows 11 has a cleaner design than its predecessors. Also, it has several new features that make it more usable. They include the ability to download and run Android applications, an overhauled Start menu, and a redesigned Teams. They also include an improved virtual desktop support similar to what MacBooks offer and features that enable better multitasking. Finally, the new Windows 11 will have features that were exclusive to Xbox consoles – like Auto HDR – to improve gaming capabilities.
This operating system will be available as an early beta next week and as a public beta in July. However, full release won’t occur until November/December, 2021.
The Windows 11 OS is free for Windows 10 users. It’s system requirements include a 64-bit CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. Also, your system has to have a TPM chip.
