For quite a long time, techies all over the world were very eagerly waiting for the arrival of Windows 11, much like a kid awaiting a Sunday. Fortunately, they do not need to wait anymore, as it is finally over and Windows 11 is finally coming this fall. We have been with Windows 10 OS for a long period of over six years, and it is about time we get a change in that. Sometime during last year, we had many speculations and leaks, and many reports were claiming on the internet that Windows 11 is going to arrive soon. But nothing was sure until officials from Microsoft themselves confirmed the launch of their brand new Windows 11 OS, and honestly, none of us can wait for it!
Considering the fact that Microsoft has officially confirmed the arrival of Windows, all of us are very desperate to know when exactly will Windows 11 hit the markets. And along with that, an abundance of tech enthusiasts want to know about the features, and also about how compatible will Windows 11 be with other devices they use.
What is the Windows 11 Release Date
Microsoft has said that they expect to launch the brand new Windows 11 operating system this fall. In addition to that, they also expect to roll out Windows 11 as an absolutely free operating system update for current users of Windows 10 during the same time period. Though it is said that not everyone will get to try their hands on the new Windows 11 Operating System initially. Until the new upgrade of Windows 11 is not loved by every user in the market, one can continue to use Windows 10, but the support will be abandoned in the year 2025, after which no one will be able to use Windows 10.
Furthermore, you also have to make sure that your laptop or personal computer meets the minimum requirements of the new Windows 11 operating system to be able to perform a successful download of Windows 11 OS. ever since Windows 11 was confirmed, there have been a lot of speculations that are made over the internet all around the world, but nothing seems to be clear at this point of time.
Microsoft will be holding a live stream to present us the new and latest updates regarding their brand new operating system, Windows 11. Anyone can get access to the said live stream from the official live stream of Microsoft. Anywho, you can go on to read other details that are concerned with Windows 11 updates below.
What are the system requirements for the new Microsoft Windows 11 OS?
The new Windows 11 features a brand new set of system requirements that Microsoft has set in order to ensure that all the PCs with Windows 11 are functioning and performing at an optimal level regarding both security and stability departments.
The minimum system requirements are as follows:
- A modern 1Ghz 64-bit dual-core processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB drive
- 9-inch display
- 1366×768 resolution
- UEFI, Secure Boot & TPM 2.0 compatible
- DirectX 12 compatible graphics / WWDM 2.x
One of the most prominent changes to the requirements for a Windows’ system is that the OS will now only be available on a 64-bit processor. Microsoft will not be releasing a 32-bit version of the new OS, although all the 32-bit apps are expected to function well on this OS.
Microsoft will also be limiting officially supported Windows 11 PCs to those on Intel 8th-generation (or equivalent) and above it. What this basically means is that if you own a CPU that is older than Intel 8th-generation, most probably you won’t be able to officially run Windows 11 on your device when it is released later during the fall this year.
Although the company has said that it will consider some Intel 7th-generation and AMD Ryzen 1000 series CPUs sometime later this year, anything older than that appears like it is off the table.
Windows 11 also needs a very specific display size which is a minimum of 9-inches, which further makes it impossible for us to see any phones or mini 8-inch tablets that have Windows 11. Microsoft also went on to increase the required drive storage to 64GB, up from 16GB with Windows 10. The company also did the same for RAM, which has been bumped from 2GB to 4GB.
What are the Salient Features in the new Microsoft Windows 11?
If we talk about the features that we will get to access in the new Windows 11 update, then we must also infer that the new Windows 11 OS won’t differ much from the existing Windows 11 OS.

A recent report from Microsoft Office itself has revealed that in the new Windows 11 update we might receive real-time battery updates via usage indicators. With this new feature in play, the battery of the device will last for a longer haul and can be more reliable as well. Below, we have mentioned some other prominent features that Windows 11 is expected to offer-
Security is one thing that every single computer or laptop user is concerned about.

One of the biggest announcements as part of Windows 11 is that Microsoft has been building a brand new app store. This brand new Microsoft Store app will feature a new fluid UI that will harmonise with the rest of Windows 11, but that is not really significant news. Microsoft will also be changing up some of the policies that govern what kind of apps will be allowed into the storefront.
With this brand new Microsoft Store, app developers from all around the globe will be able to submit unpackaged Win32 apps in .exe or. MSI form. Developers may also use their own content delivery networks, and their personal commerce platforms, without Microsoft taking a cut in revenue made. This will let practically any app on the Windows platform be listed and found in the Microsoft Store by all the users.
