Windows 10 testers are now being informed of whether they’re okay to upgrade by Windows Update
Windows 10 testers are now being notified of whether their PC is compatible for an upgrade to Windows 11.
Currently, to check whether they’re eligible to upgrade to Windows 11, those testing Windows 10 must use the recently revamped preview version of Microsoft’s PC Health Check tool (the one that was briefly released when Windows 11 was first announced, and then swiftly pulled due to issues, if you recall). But now testers in the Release Preview channel are getting a direct message from Windows Update on the compatibility status of their PC, as Windows Latest spotted.
Assuming all is well, you’ll receive the following message:
Great news – your PC meets the minimum system requirements for Windows 11. Specific timing for when it will be offered can vary as we get it ready for you. Note: Some Windows 10 features aren’t available in Windows 11. Certain apps and features may have additional requirements.
Or, on the other hand, you’ll be told that your machine won’t support Windows 11. A link is also provided by Windows Update so you can check out the exact device specifications required for the revamped version of the operating system.
Examination: A helpful touch – and disregard compatibility alerts at your danger
This compatibility message and connection to additional information on spec necessities is clearly a convenient option to Windows Update, and without a doubt soon sufficient the delivery variant of Windows 10 will get this usefulness – unquestionably if Windows 11 adheres to its anticipated dispatch timetable of October (passing by the gossip plant), since that truly isn’t far away at this point.
Keep in mind, however, that regardless of whether your PC is announced as unsuitable for Windows 11, it will be feasible to feel free to introduce the new OS physically through an ISO file, in light of the fact that as we as of late heard, Microsoft will not forestall this.
Note cautiously, in any case, that disregarding similarity admonitions and feeling free to take this DIY course to get Windows 11 on your PC will have some significant provisos, including the likelihood that your framework may turn out to be truly unsteady.
