Windows 11 will be available as the operating system for new PCs in October, and it will be a free upgrade from Windows 10.

According to Aaron Woodman, general manager of Windows marketing, the upgrade will begin with new eligible devices, followed by a staggered rollout to other suitable devices, based on "intelligence models that consider hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, device age, and other factors that impact the upgrade experience."

All eligible devices should be able to update to Windows 11 by the middle of 2022, with Windows Update informing users of the software's availability.

While users may upgrade unsupported PCs to Windows 11 when it becomes available, The Verge warns that doing so may result in an unsupported Windows 11 state, which means that security updates and patches will be unavailable.

Unfortunately, during this launch window, the Android Apps integration with Windows 11 will be missing.

Microsoft is “continuing our journey to bring Android applications to Windows 11 and the Microsoft Store via our partnership with Amazon and Intel; this will begin with a preview for Windows Insiders in the coming months,” according to Woodman.
