Microsoft announced the next major upgrade of Windows 10 on June 24th via an online event. The next version of Windows will be called Windows 11. Quite obvious, isn’t it? No, it isn’t, as a couple of years ago, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be the last version.

Well, that is past now, Windows 11 is now real and the official public version is available from October 4th, and you might want to install it on your PC.

Since the OTA update might take time to reach each PC due to the number of Windows 10 systems. Microsoft usually roll-outs major updates/upgrades in batches so that it reliably reaches the users. But again, reaching everyone could take at least a week or so.

Well, nothing to worry about; the good news is that you can download the official ISO file and use it to upgrade to Windows 11. Follow the below instructions to download the Windows 11 ISO file and install it on your PC.
