Windows 12: News and Expected Price, Release Date, Specs; and More Rumors: A possible future update for the Windows operating system, (Microsoft Company). This Windows may be available in 2024 according to information from various websites, although there is no official confirmation from Microsoft. Some of the possible features for this Windows 11 successor include UI enhancements, better Android app support, AI, and reliance on the Settings app.
When will Windows 12 be release?
As we have discussed in the beginning, Microsoft company has not announced any official information about the new Windows 12. It’s not like Microsoft will pull a Windows 9 move and skip this version and land on W13—it’s just that neither I nor anyone else has heard anything official from the company. So we cannot provide any clear information about Windows 12. But some online information suggests that it could be release in 2024.
There isn’t really a consistent timeline to gauge when Windows 12 will arrive. However, we can estimate the Windows 12 arrival date based on previous operating system arrival dates.
- Starting with Windows 7 in 2009:
- Windows 8 arrives three years later (2012)
- Windows 10 arrives three years later (2015)
- Windows 11 arrives six years later (2021)
- Windows 12 could arrive in three years (2024)
This timeline is echoe by Windows Central:
As we understand from the table above, Microsoft now intends to ship a “major” version of the Windows client every three years, with the next release currently scheduled for 2024, three years after Windows 11 ships in 2021. A similar timeline is expect for this version, so you’ll be able to access a pre-release build of Windows 12 through
