Windows 11 will be available on compatible hardware from Microsoft, HP, Lenovo, Dell and other partners from October. The new operating system will also be an optional update if you choose to upgrade your existing device (provided it has compatible hardware).
But Microsoft, as Dimitris mentioned to previous publication, does not plan to disable the "gaps" that currently exist and allow anyone to run Windows 11.
To help businesses and IT administrators evaluate their existing settings with the upcoming operating system, Microsoft will allow you to install Windows 11 on unsupported devices only through the Media Creation Tool or ISO images.
Microsoft does not promote or recommend the installation of Windows 11 on unsupported devices, and support for drivers will be limited. Older devices will not be supported because Microsoft Telemetry has revealed that older hardware could not reliably run Windows 11 due to kernel crashes and other performance issues.
So Windows 11 will not be released through Windows Update or WSUS for businesses or individuals with unsupported devices, according to a company statement, but you will be able to install Windows 11 on an "unsupported" device using the Media Creation Tool or the installation image (.ISO).
You will also be able to use Windows Insider to run the new operating system.
In other words, you do not need to worry if your computer has a newer processor or TPM 2.0. You can download and install Windows 11 on your device, as long as you are comfortable with any issues that may arise.
For example, the laptop I use does not meet Microsoft kernel specifications. It could be Intel 7th generation, but is not on the Microsoft list. I still run Windows 11.
Microsoft has also released an improved version of the Windows 11 Compatibility Checker "PC HealthCheck".

Your article on Windows 11: new PC Health Check for compatibility check from Microsoft states that PCs with 6th generation processors are not supported, and in this article you say that Windows 11 will be included on all PCs. I still do not understand what It will be done
