On October 5, the very last version of Windows was released.
Unfortunately, Microsoft decided to tighten the screw and limit access to Windows 11. As a result, a large number of people were denied the upgrade.
Very quickly, methods to bypass the restrictions appeared, but Microsoft immediately reacted by warning users that non-compatible devices that installed Windows 11 would not receive an update, leaving their device at the mercy of computer vulnerabilities.
However, it would appear that this is not currently the case.
The XDA Developers site has indeed reported that incompatible computers were able to benefit from the latest updates to Windows 11 when the first patches were released.
While this is good news for people who have decided to go ahead and install the new OS anyway, it's important to remember that support could still be discontinued in the future.
There can be no assurance that Microsoft will continue to make updates available to all computers.
Not that easy
If you still want to upgrade to Windows 11, you will need to perform a manual installation with an ISO file, since you cannot upgrade from an incompatible computer.
If your computer is compatible, however, the upgrade operation is easier.
We have also produced a step-by-step guide showing how to do it from Windows 10.
Finally, if you decide to skip your turn and stay on Windows 10, be aware that Microsoft has announced that it will support the operating system at least until 2025.
