Windows 11 is out now: here’s what you need to know before you upgrade

Windows 11 is out now: here’s what you need to know before you upgrade

Microsoft’s new OS can be installed right now, but there are some things you need to know…

Windows 11 review: We like it but you shouldn’t be upgrading today
Release date: October 5, 2021
Price: Free upgrade for existing Windows 10 users
How to install Windows 11

Interface changes: New, rounded design
Redesigned Microsoft store and support for Android Apps
Better Xbox app integration
AutoHDR makes old games look more vibrant

DirectStorage will bolster SSDs on Windows 11
Windows 11 has brought a new lick of paint to Microsoft’s OS. There’s a brand new look for the desktop, a major UI redesign, and big changes to the core Microsoft OS apps and services that we’ve come to rely upon in PC gaming. Most importantly of all, though, Microsoft says Windows 11 was built for gamers.
And all of that was meant to arrive October 5, 2021. Except, frustratingly, many of the promised features and refurbished apps aren’t included in the launch day build. The new Windows Store is present and correct, though we’re still waiting for Android apps to make their anticipated appearance, and AutoHDR is there, but no DirectStorage, and the prettified Paint is notably absent, too.
Prior to the official announcement, however, it wasn’t clear what the future of the Windows OS would be. The general expectation was that the changes to the Windows UI, codenamed Sun Valley, would simply roll at as yet another Windows 10 update. And in many respects, that’s what Windows 11 is, another update to Windows 10, albeit one that Microsoft’s marketing department can get behind.
