This fall, Microsoft is releasing a successor to the original Windows 11 version. The release is known for long as "version 22H2". Now, an updated "Get Started" app reveals what can become the marketing name of the upcoming release.
Traditionally for recent Windows updates, they have a version number and a user friendly name. For example, the initial Windows 10 version was simply "Windows 10", but then we have seen "Creators Update", Fall Creators Update, May 2020 Update, and so on.
Similarly, Windows 11 "gold" release didn't come with any marketing name as a new products at its time. In order to differentiate its successors, the upcoming "22H2" release will get an easy to remember name.
Windows 11 2022 Update
The latest version of the built-in Get Started app shows that marketing name as Windows 11 2022 Update. While it wasn't officially announced or confirmed, it will most likely be like that. The text in the app reads the following.

The new name fits the scheme Microsoft chose for the recent releases of Windows 10, so it is not surprising.
Rumors say that Microsoft will release Windows 11 version 22H2 on September 20, 2022. While Microsoft didn't confirm this date yet, it matches the current OS release schedule.
