  • The update won’t include new features or significant changes.
  • It’ll only include fixes and minor improvements.

Microsoft has officially announced its plans to roll out Windows 10 22H2 in October. Version 22H2 will be the twelfth feature update that Microsoft will be rolling out for devices that do not meet the hardware requirements or those who are not ready to upgrade to Windows 11.

The company hasn’t shared specific details on what will be included, but this update is not expected to include any significant features or changes. Instead, this release will be more like a maintenance update that will install similarly to a monthly update.

Windows 10 22H2 is already available for testing in the Release Preview Channel as build 19045.1865 (KB5015878) with a couple of improvements for Focus assist and Windows Autopilot and several fixes. (You will also notice that the build number is slightly changing from 19044 on version 21H2 to 19045 for version 22H2.)

It’s important to note that Windows 10 will reach the end of its life on October 14, 2025, and any update from this time forward is to maintain the operating system and keep it secure. If you want new features, you should upgrade your computer to Windows 11.
