Microsoft urges enterprise to test Windows 10 21H1 as May launch looms
Microsoft is now telling commercial customers that Windows 10 21H1 is ready for “commercial pre-release validation,” a phrase it first used in August 2020 prior to the launch of that year’s minor fall upgrade.
“Windows 10, version 21H1, is now available for commercial customers to begin feature exploration and validation prior to being released for general availability,” Aria Carley, senior program manager, wrote in a March 18 post to a company blog.
Microsoft has not yet divulged a launch date for Windows 10 21H1, the year’s first feature upgrade, as noted by the H1 — for first-half — designation. However, a month ago, the Redmond, Wash. developer implied that, unlike in years past, the spring refresh would be a minor upgrade, one with few if any new features and little new functionality.
