Windows 11: the various updates planned by Microsoft for 2023

Launched in 2021, the Windows 11 system continues to improve through updates. While waiting for Windows 12, Microsoft would have planned a nice batch of changes for 2023.

The launch of Windows 11 in 2021 was accompanied by Microsoft’s promise to slow down the frequency of updates. Publishing too many updates too often could lose consumers and especially companies who had to validate each change before deploying them.

The new system is therefore only entitled to one major update per year, in the fall, while waiting for Windows 12 already expected for 2024. If Microsoft sticks to this schedule, 2023 should be the last year Windows 11 will be the latest system from the side of the firm.

For the occasion, the firm would have planned several adjustments.

Three updates
According to the well-informed WalkingCat on Twitter, Microsoft would prepare a new substantial update for Windows 11 as early as May 2023. In addition, there is a “Moments” update which would arrive in February or March. You don’t understand anything about it? It’s normal.

For Windows 11, Microsoft seems to offer three sizes of updates. The “Moments” which are functional adjustments, the “Continuous Innovations” which are a little more important, and the annual updates deemed major by the publisher.

We would therefore have the following schedule:

February or March: small “Moments” update
May: Big “Continuous Innovations” Update
Fall: Windows 11 2023 Major Update (Windows 11 23H2)
Expected changes
For the first update, we can expect the deployment of several changes currently in testing in the Insider program. For example a better display of the taskbar for tablets, the fullscreen Widget panel or improvements for the task manager.

The second, more substantial update should notably offer an adaptation of Windows 11 to foldable PCs like the Zenbook Fold to better manage this new format. The Windows Central site indicates that this update should also modernize the system interface by still removing certain elements from Windows 7 or Windows 8.

On the other hand, we lack information on the changes brought by Windows 11 2023. According to Windows Central, this update could be less important than usual. We should discover some changes in 2023 through the Windows Insider program.
