Microsoft revealed this week that it has finalized Windows 10 version 21H1 and will soon begin deploying it to customers. But you don’t need to wait: You can install it right now.
And while upgrading early some previous versions of Windows 10 could potentially be painful or unreliable, I don’t believe that will be the case with version 21H1: Like versions 1909, 2004, and 20H2 before it, Windows 10 version 21H2 isn’t a “real” Feature Update. Instead, it’s built on the same code base as 20H2 and is just a minor revision with few new features. Plus, if you’re already using 2004, it’s delivered as a cumulative update, so the entire process will take well under 30 minutes.
