Windows 11 22H2 upgrade notification

Windows 11 22H2 upgrade expands to more computers

Starting immediately, more eligible devices can upgrade to Windows 11 22H2 through the Windows Update settings.

  • Microsoft expands Windows 11 22H2 availability to more computers.
  • The rollout expansion is through the Windows Update settings.
  • The company is pushing forward with the rollout because the update doesn’t have many issues.

Microsoft is expanding the availability of Windows 11 22H2 (2022 Update) to more compatible computers. Although the new version of Windows has been available since September 20, 2022, it was only available for some devices that met the minimum system requirements. However, on October 4, 2022, the software giant noted on its health dashboard website that the controlled rollout is expanding to more devices.

“We are entering a new phase of the rollout for Windows 11, version 22H2, and we are increasing its availability to all who check for updates on eligible Windows devices.” – the company notes.

The rollout expansion comes only several weeks after the official launch of version 22H2, which indicates that the feature update is proving to be very stable, despite a few known issues with file copying, gaming performance, and audio drivers.

It’s worth emphasizing that Microsoft refers to the availability through the “Windows Update” settings since anyone can already upgrade using the Installation Assistant. Also, you or perform a clean installation using the USB flash drive, ISO file, or Media Creation Tool.

If you were still wondering when the right time is to upgrade to the Windows 11 2022 Update, now might be the time to check for updates. However, remember that we are still in the early days, so version 22H2 might not be fully compatible with your computer’s hardware configuration. You typically want to wait for at least three or four monthly updates before upgrading.
