Windows 11 23H2 won’t show up on some systems due to a phased rollout, according to sources familiar with Microsoft’s development. Microsoft plans to expand the rollout via Windows Update in the coming weeks, likely after it begins pushing Windows 11 2023 Update via the Media Creation Tool.
- Windows 11 23H2 is being released gradually, prioritising newer devices like Surface products. If you have not installed the Windows 11 Moment 4 update, 23H2 will bring significant changes.
- For those who don’t want to wait for the automatic update, manual installation is possible through the Installation Assistant or by downloading the Windows 11 ISO file.
- Windows 11 2023 Update introduces a range of new features, such as Microsoft Copilot for task assistance, a revamped Settings home page with interactive cards, and Dynamic Lighting control for compatible devices, among others.
Windows 11 2023 Update, also known as Windows 11 23H2 Update, started its optional rollout on Oct 31. Since this version of Windows is based on Windows 11 22H2, last year’s major upgrade, it is available as a free download for everyone. Still, it’s not yet available for every compatible hardware.
While Windows 11 23H2 is a minor release and an enablement package, it is still a significant update if you do not have Windows 11 Moment 4 installed. As a result, Microsoft is launching the update in a phased and measured manner, with new hardware like Surface products getting the upgrade first and the rest getting offered the update a bit later.
In theory, you’ll automatically get a notification from Windows Update when version 23H2 is available and the “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” toggle is enabled in Windows Update…
