The support for Windows 10 version 20H2 is coming to an end. That means that, whether you like it or not, Microsoft will push you to upgrade to a newer version over the next three months.
The information comes from Microsoft’s Windows Health Dashboard, which has recently been updated to state that users who are still running Windows 10 version 20H2 will be automatically upgraded to version 21H2. This is unsurprising, as Microsoft has always compelled users to upgrade to newer versions as older releases reach the end of their support lifecycle.
After May 2022, the Windows 10 Home and Pro versions will no longer be supported. This means that users running Windows 10 20H2 or earlier have only around three months to update to the latest version. Here’s what Microsoft had to say about it:
In light of this timetable, we began a machine learning (ML) training rollout targeting devices running Windows 10, version 20H2, that are nearing the end of their service lifecycle and should be updated automatically to Windows 10, version 21H2.
The initial phase of machine learning training, according to Microsoft, is the release of newer updates. This essentially means that Microsoft will use AI to automatically update select machines, observe the consequences, and then proceed depending on the findings.
