Microsoft officially announced the release date of Windows 11 earlier today. But one more version of Windows 10 will also be released later in the year before the company calls it quits on the operating system. The Windows maker will continue to support Windows 10 for the next few years with security updates.

Today, Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 update for both the latest Windows 10 May 2021 Update (version 21H1) and the final version of the OS, version 21H2. Windows 10 v21H1 Build 19043.1202 and v21H2 Build 19044.1202 "preview" are available for Insiders in the Release Preview Channel.
