Microsoft is working on the next feature update for its Windows 10 operating system. The company will release two feature updates in 2021 for the operating system, but plans to reverse the order in which these get released. In the previous two years, Microsoft released the main update of the year in the first half and a lighter follow-up update in the second half.
Starting in 2021, Microsoft will reverse the order and release a lighter update in the first half and the major update in the second half. The company has not revealed when the first update of 2021 will become available.
If you check the release month of the first feature update for Windows 10 of the past two years, you will notice that both were released in the month of May.
Windows 10 version 1903 was released on May 21, 2019, and Windows 10 version 2004 was released on May 28, 2020. Before that, the first updates of the year were released in the month of April.
Considering that there is a shift in the release order in 2021, some commenters assumed that Windows 10 version 21H1 could be released earlier than usual because of its minor status.
According to that post, Windows 10 21H1 may be released in June 2021. The post appears to have been edited as the current version does not contain the release month anymore.
Windows Latest captured a screenshot of the message. The wording of the original message was the following according to that screen capture:
The Windows Release coming out this June 2021 has a new API that can disable KTM exploits.
The edited message does not mention a release month anymore:
An upcoming Windows Release has a new API that can disable KTM exploits.
A June 2021 release date is not out of the question, considering that it could very well mean an early June 2021 release date.
