The Sun Valley Update, long rumored for Windows 10, and rumored to be released as "Windows 11", will be announced on June 24. Microsoft has confirmed that it is on a multi-year journey to "revolutionize" the Windows user experience and the upcoming update will bring significant changes to the platform.
So we expect great things from the Sun Valley update, which is expected to be available on preview channels later this month and released to the general public in the fall.
Prior to the announcement of the Sun Valley update, Microsoft decided to test the "service pipeline" for Windows Insider to release cumulative updates, as opposed to the full preview versions with the new features. Today, the new Build 21390.1000 was released on the Dev channel and it is a cumulative update without new features or changes.
"The system in which we provide updates (servicing pipeline) over the new versions before the release must be tested. Not just bugs in the build, but bugs in the system we use to apply these updates to newer versions, ”says Brandon LeBlanc, senior program manager at Windows Insider.
Windows 11 is hidden
Microsoft's decision to discontinue preview releases indicates that the company is busy changing the code only internally to merge Sun Valley features that were removed from the preview releases.
There will be no major updates until June 24 as Microsoft essentially hides the "Sun Valley" design to surprise consumers at the upcoming event.
We hope that the changes that Microsoft is preparing will not stop at the visual improvements and the new UI design.
