THE HIGHLY anticipated release date for Windows 11 may have accidentally leaked online.
US tech company Intel revealed files that reference “Windows 11-64 – October 2021 Update – version 21H2”.
This suggests Windows 11 will be avaliable in October this year.
Microsoft has been saying that the software is “due out later in 2021 and will be delivered over several months”.
The latest leak comes from release notes published by Intel with information about its new GPU driver.
Rumours had already been circulating online about a possible October release date.
As with all rumours and leaks, we’ll need to wait until official word from the company before we know a definite Windows 11 release date.
Windows 11 price – is Windows 11 free for everyone?
Later this year, we’ll start seeing laptops and PCs sold with Windows 11 bundled in.
But maybe you have a computer already, and you just want to upgrade it?
The good news is that Windows 11 will be totally free as an upgrade from Windows 10.
If you’re running an older operating system, you can upgrade to Windows 10 and then Windows 11 if you prefer.
