Microsoft today released the official ISO images for Windows 10 version 21H1. Using them, you can perform a clean installation of build 19043. This build is currently available in the Beta channel for Insiders.
The company has updated the ISO image download page for Insiders by making the 21H1 ISO images available. The released files contain Windows 10 Build 19043, which is supposed to be the final version of Windows 10 version 21H1.
Microsoft considers the released images as a 'technical preview', so there is no warranty from the company that the OS will operate smoothly on your device.
Windows 10 21H1 has the same hardware requirements as Windows 10 20H2. The OS is just a slightly more significant update than a regular cumulative update. You will find some visible improvements and new features, but overall you can describe the Windows 10 21H1 update as quite a small one.
Windows 10 version 21H1 will be distributed to consumers in March or April 2021 with KB4598291. it will eventually appear as an optional update for Windows 10 2004 and Windows 10 20H2. As you may have already guessed, it is an enablement package that turns the mentioned versions into Build 19043.

Maybe it would be interesting if you detail what are the improvements included in the Build 19043, as Microsoft does not spend time including an option, like a button, if one wants to know what is about to install when choosing to update.
