Microsoft released upgrades twice a year with significant new features and enhancements to keep Windows 10 around for a very long period. However, Windows 11 changed Microsoft’s upgrade strategy, allowing the company to offer a new operating system—at least with a new name. This method may be Microsoft’s new approach for its Windows operating system, as seen in Windows Central.
Microsoft announced that it would switch to a more normal 3-year cycle for the release of new operating systems while continuing to add new capabilities to the one that is already in use.
By adopting this strategy, Windows 12 (also known as Next Valley) would be made available in 2024, three years after Windows 11 was introduced at the end of 2021. In addition to the regular annual upgrades that the corporation releases, it is attempting to offer new updates throughout the year dubbed “Moments.” Microsoft has already implemented this new method by including a weather button on the taskbar.
Therefore, this 3-year cycle to release Windows 12 in 2024 would have been preferred over the rumour to launch a new Windows in 2023. The news planned for Sun Valley 3 will be added to Windows 11 through the “Moments” update system, allowing users to access this and other features without waiting for one of the two significant releases that Windows 10 receives annually.
