Microsoft has given us reason to expect two updates a year. In the last few years, Windows 10 updates have been released with the major H1 updates first, and the minor H2 updates released later in the year. However, in the 2021 year, this seems to be changing.
On February 2021, it has been confirmed through a Windows blog post that the 21H1 update will be released this spring. This will be a smaller, cumulative update following the release of the 20H2 version in October 2020. The 21H1 will start its release to the public in May 2021.
In the Windows blog post, they have explained what this update will do for their customers. It will provide improvements in “security, remote access, and quality.” They are focusing on three major features:
- Windows Hello Multicamera Support
- When both internal and external cameras are on, you can set the external camera as your default
- Windows Defender Application Guard
- This feature helps isolate sites into Hyper-V-enabled containers for security. This only works with the Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft declares that they will speed up the documents opening times.
- Windows Management Group Policy
- Ability to do remote work using this policy will be improved
We may be disappointed in not having a large update, however, this update will have a faster installation process and will limit the bugs that could occur.
Any features that were hoped for this update will be delayed until the 21H2 update, hopefully.
