This week on Pureinfotech: Microsoft seems to be preparing to release two versions of its operating system this year, including Windows 11 and a new feature update for Windows 10. Although it’s not official, the company continues to tease the number “11” as part of the branding for the next generation of Windows.

While the version of Windows is expected to supersede the current version of the operating system, the official documentation website reveals that we will have support for Windows 10 at least until mid-October 2025.

As part of the Patch Tuesday rollout for June, the update KB5003637 released for versions 21H1, 20H2, and 2004 to address a number of security vulnerabilities and improve the system for sorting and managing files. In addition, Microsoft announced this week that it’s working with TV makers to embed a new Xbox app into smart TVs, and the company is building a gaming streaming stick to reach more gamers on any screen.
