Windows 11, version 21H2 will reach end of servicing in October 2023

Microsoft notifies its customers that several editions of Windows 11 version 21H2 will reach their end of servicing on October 10, 2023. The affected editions are Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro Workstation.

These editions will no longer receive security updates after October 10, 2023. Microsoft is already moving their users to a newer release, Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2). Starting on January 28, 2023, the company force-installs version 22H2. This is the first time in the modern Windows history when Microsoft forcibly upgrades devices before the OS reaches the end of support date.

Due to this move, the percent of device running the original version of Windows 11 should not be high. You will find the official announcement here.

The original version of Windows 11 was released on October 5, 2021. The final release was Build 22000.258. It introduced the key UI changes, including icon-only taskbar with centered icons, the new Start menu, and the new style of window frames and effects.
