Windows 11 has been available for the past 24 hours for download, a day earlier than Microsoft said it will be released. Users in New Zealand were able to download the latest operating system before others.
Users with Windows 10 ready devices will be able to download the 11 version right now. This also applies to users who have already purchased PCs with Windows 11 preinstalled. Ordinary Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Lenovo, Asus and HP are already shipping Windows 11 with their Laptops and PCs.
Microsoft earlier said Windows 11 will be available as a free upgrade on October 5, 2021. The tech company made the announcement on August 31, 2021. The upgrade will first be available for newer 11th generation laptops and then older eligible laptops in Mid 2022.
Like the other versions, Microsoft will be releasing Windows 11 in batches. While the newer laptops will ship the operating system preloaded after October 5th. As earlier announced Android apps will be coming, but sadly not this year.

“Following the tremendous learnings from Windows 10, we want to make sure we’re providing you with the best possible experience,” says Aron Woodman, General Manager (Windows Marketing) at Microsoft.
“We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to Windows 11 by mid-2022.”
The unveiling of the operating system was handled mainly by Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer Panos.
Windows 11 has a minimalistic and redesigned interface, with the biggest changes to the Start Menu. The tech giants have also redesigned their widgets, App store and lots more.
Some people say the new operating seems to borrow a lot from the iMac OS design language. Although, not everyone will be able to upgrade to this operating system. There are some requirements to be met, even though the upgrade is totally free.
