Rumours have been circulating for some time now that Windows 11 could debut around this period. And Microsoft could have dropped its biggest hint yet that is when the new OS will launch in a support document.
The release date tease was revealed in Microsoft’s “Windows 11 version 21H2 hardware driver submissions” documentation that was published on June 24. This type of document is used by Microsoft to let OEMs know when they need to submit driver submissions so they don’t miss any upcoming major launches.
According to Microsoft document, OEMs have to submit their final drivers for the Windows 11 version 21H2 update by the end of September.
The Windows makers said: “Partners looking to achieve compatibility for systems shipping with Windows 11, version 21H2 Release may factory-install drivers for components that achieved compatibility with Windows 10, version 2004 until September 24, 2021”.
