Microsoft has announced that it has started the automatic upgrade of Windows 10 devices to version 21H1.
Earlier this month, Microsoft began training machine learning algorithms to find out what issues might arise during the update process before upgrading a larger number of users to Windows 10 21H1.
So far Windows 10 21H1 is offered as an option manual update that you can install if you go to "check for updates" in Windows Update. Yesterday, Microsoft announced that it will update automatically a large number of Windows 10 devices with version 21H1.
"We are now starting a new phase in our release. Using the machine learning training we have created so far, we increase the number of devices selected for automatic updating in Windows 10, version 21H1, and that are nearing the end of the service ", explains Microsoft on the Windows 10 notification page, version 21H1 .
With Windows 10 2004 coming to an end on December 14, 2021, most devices with this version of Windows 10 will automatically upgrade to the latest version.
For those who do not wish to upgrade to Windows 10 21H1, you can postpone the automatic feature update using the "Auto-update configuration" group policy in Computer Settings> Administration Templates> Windows Components> Windows Update> Windows Update for businesses.
