Intel may have leaked the Windows 11 release date ahead of schedule

Windows Latest uncovered some Intel drivers called “Windows 11 -64 – October 2021 Update – version 21H2”. Which is rather more specific than the general “later in 2021” Microsoft has been telling everyone.

We know Windows 11 is coming, but Microsoft has been decidedly coy about confirming an exact release date. But it seems like an Intel leak might have narrowed that release window down.

The driver name has been uncovered in release notes for Intel’s latest GPU driver. While it doesn’t give us an exact date, the clear reference to Windows 11 in October 2021 suggests that could be the month Microsoft’s next OS starts rolling out.

It also helps that Microsoft has a habit of naming Windows updates based on when they arrive. 21H2 means that the update is planned for the second half of 2021, which we obviously already knew about, while ‘October’ is pretty self-explanatory.

There have already been some rumors that Windows 11 would arrive in October. Or October 20, if you want to be really specific, a date that Microsoft’s announcement presentation hinted at. Walmart’s website also mentioned a “free upgrade to Windows October 2021 on some of its laptop listings.

Of course, Windows 11’s release is likely to be in stages, and not everyone will be able to update to the software on day one. Microsoft has already confirmed that the operating system will be “delivered over several months”, and that the rollout of Windows 10 upgrades won’t begin until early 2022.

In other words, Windows 11 may be looking to release in October, but you will have to wait before you can get hold of it for yourself. Assuming you don’t buy a Windows 11 laptop with the OS already installed, that is. Of course. if you’re too impatient to wait for the stable release to roll out to you, you can always install the Windows 11 beta. That’s available right now, assuming your PC has compatible hardware. If that appeals, be sure to check out our guide on how to install the Windows 11 Insider preview.
