Will Windows 11 22H2 Release This Month?

A few days ago, Redmond Technologies released Windows 11 Build 22610 for Insiders in Beta and Dev Channel. The latest update didn’t bring any exciting or game-changing new features.

A new major Windows 11 update may be arriving earlier than RTM (Released to Manufacturing) than we thought.

Windows 11 22H2 is said to be RTM ready

The upcoming release of Windows 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) may have just been confirmed on social media.

It guesses that Windows 11 build 22621 is what Microsoft hopes to release as the final build for version 22H2, and the date of signing is May 20.

Microsoft senior program manager Brandon LeBlanc didn’t actually disprove the rumor, suggesting it was indeed as likely as others thought.

Although there’s no official information yet to support this theory, but the signs are communicating with some of the more tech-savvy users. People believe that Windows 11 22H2 is highly likely to hit RTM this month (May 2022). Some people disagree with the RTM date, arguing that a more realistic date is the end of June.

Windows 22H2, also known as Sun Valley 2, is actually the only major Windows 11 update this year since Microsoft moved to an annual cadence. It is different from the semi-annual H1 and H2 releases we’re used to Windows 10.

As such, the official Windows 11 22H2 update is likely to bring a ton of new features, including the ability to create application folders in the start menu, a colorful task manager, centralized accessibility integration with Notification Center, a more colorful task manager, Tabbed File Explorer, and more.

Since we talked about the new update, Microsoft has been informing Insiders that the Dev Channel will soon begin testing Sun Valley 3, the next version of Windows 11 due in 2023.

Right now, everyone is just waiting for Microsoft to confirm the information and provide a realistic release date for future products.
