On June 24, 2021, Microsoft announced its latest version of Windows that is Windows 11.
Earlier, Microsoft had said that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows, but now there is a little twist. Windows 11 is live now.
Windows 11 is a free upgrade for Windows 10, and it has many new UI changes and other cool stuff. The Windows 11 beta is rolling out, and as of now, it is only available for Windows Insiders.
The new version of Windows is pretty awesome, and every Windows fan is eagerly waiting to use it. Unfortunately, right now it is limited to Windows Insiders only. And the Windows 11 OTA update is yet to come.
If you want to try Windows 11, then first you need to download the ISO file, burn it into any bootable device, and flash the drive to install it. Literally, it’s all messy. Instead, waiting for an OTA update is a much better option.
Windows 11 OTA update
Windows 11 OTA update is yet to come, currently, it is in the beta stage and as soon as the stable version release, slowly they’ll start rolling OTA update to the existing Windows 10 users. Microsoft had said that it will be a free upgrade for Windows 10 users.
To check the Windows 11 compatibility on your device, you first have to download and install PC Health Check software. It will tell you whether your PC supports Windows 11 OTA updates or not.
Alternatively, you can compare the below mentioned configurations with your current device.

The latest beta is much stable and has fewer bugs, and If you can’t wait for Windows 11 OTA update and want to give it a try to Windows 11, you can download the ISO file from the official site by becoming a Windows Insider, or you can also get it from other mirror URLs as well. Note: Downloading the OS from an unofficial site may contain viruses, hence it is recommended to refer to the official site only.
