  • Microsoft just made the official Windows 11 downloads available.
  • That’s a day earlier than expected. The originally announced launch date was October 5, 2021.
  • If you have newer hardware, you might see the update available very soon. Older hardware might take a while.

Months ago, Microsoft officially revealed it would launch the latest version of Windows on October 5, 2021. Two weeks ago, it launched a bunch of new hardware that supports the new Windows, all of which is slated to release on October 5, too.

However, it looks like Microsoft just couldn’t wait, as Windows 11 is available right now (via The Verge). That’s a day earlier than expected.
