Microsoft Temporarily Pauses Windows 10 Previews
The Windows 10 Insider previews are temporarily suspended. Formally for testing purposes, but the general expectation is that the company wants to prevent details about Windows 11 from leaking out.
The Insider Preview Builds are updated to Windows before they are rolled out to the general public. It gives developers or enthusiasts the chance to have already an insight into what’s changing in Windows.
Now Microsoft is updating a late May blog post saying there will be no more weekly new builds. However, there are always additional updates of the latest build (21390). The explanation is that Microsoft wants to test several additional updates on top of each other, among other things.
But it’s generally believed to be an excuse. After all, on June 24, Microsoft is organizing an event about Windows, and everything indicates that it will announce ‘Windows 11’ there.
Whether that will be effective under that name is not certain, but it is certain that Windows, especially the consumer versions, will receive a thorough overhaul later this month.
