Microsoft confirms “Windows 11 2024 Update”, Intel says it will include Wi-Fi 7 | Laptop News

Microsoft is working on the next big update for Windows 11, dubbed “Windows 11 2024 Update”, which carries version 24H2 and is codenamed “Hudson Valley”. This Windows release primarily focuses on artificial intelligence, but there’s more to the update than just AI.

This update will offer many changes, ranging from AI to Sudo for Windows, improved native archive integration, and Wi-Fi 7.
