The final step of testing for Windows 11 22H2 has begun, and the new operating system is scheduled to be widely distributed by October. Microsoft approved the fall 2022 update for the Windows Insider beta testing program’s Release Preview Channel.

As you’re surely aware, the Release Preview channel is the final step in the testing process before the feature update’s commercial deployment. The next large upgrade for Windows 11 will be polished in the Release Preview Channel, and various bugs will be corrected based on user feedback.

This comes as no surprise, given Microsoft has already stated that Build 22621 is the RTM version of Windows 11 22H2. Following RTM, a more significant distribution via the Release Preview Channel is the next step in testing. Microsoft will begin rolling out Build 22621 cumulative updates later this month, including additional bug fixes and a few minor enhancements.

The Fall 2022 update for Windows 11 is now in final testing

While the fall 2022 update for Windows 11 is currently available in the Release Preview Channel, it is not yet ready for production devices. The upgrade will reportedly spend at least a few months in this testing stage, as the tech giant wants to ensure that it is stable enough.

The initial version of Windows, Windows 11 21H2, was released in October of last year and had several faults. It goes without saying that Microsoft wants to give Windows 11’s first significant update more time and enhance its testing standards to avoid problems like the unstable taskbar and other concerns.

If you can’t wait for the formal launch, you can get a sneak peek at Windows 11 22H2 by signing up for the Release Preview Channel. Remember that the Windows Insiders Program is purely voluntary; therefore, it automatically won’t be provided to you.

Even if you join the Release Preview, only’seekers’ will be allowed to obtain the upgrade, which means those who click on the download button.

Although Windows 11 22H2 isn’t a huge update, it does include several new features. Microsoft, for example, is working on new Start menu features, a redesigned Task Manager, Mica integration in more desktop apps, and the reintroduction of drag and drop for the taskbar, among other things.

Microsoft’s Beta Channel will now be used for the Windows 11 23H2 update, released next year as the next significant upgrade.

Although the initial ‘bits’ of Windows 11 23H2 are currently accessible in the Dev Channel, Microsoft will not be releasing any new features anytime soon. Microsoft has previously stated that Dev Channel is not bound to any certain version and that further information about the future of Windows will be available soon.
