The first important Windows 11 22H2 version 22H2, or Sun Valley 2 update, is anticipated to bring a few important enhancements to the system.
New Features & Release Date:
A few references in the earlier code suggest it could be that Windows 11 version 22H2 RTM will be available between May and June.
Windows 11 22H2 could be completed in the next few days, with Build 22621 expected to be an RTM
Windows 10 version 22H2 will arrive at the RTM (release into manufacturing) status within a couple of days according to reliable sources.
Many are of the opinion the RTM could be officially declared on the 24th of May.
For those who aren’t familiar for those unfamiliar, the RTM version is the final version of a specific Windows 11 release, but it’s not the last revision.
Also, Windows 11 22H2 will hit RTM status in May. However, it will be receiving incremental updates with minor or significant improvements until the public rollout in the fall.
An RTM build is delivered to OEMs such as Intel and HP to enable the latest version of Windows on brand new devices, and to try the update on users who are already running Windows 11.
RTM is a critical stage in the release of every Windows feature update. Microsoft plans to approve Windows 11 build 222621 to be its RTM build.
But as our sources have confirmed that, even when the RTM version is released prior to its time to release at the close of May, Microsoft may delay the Sun Valley 2 release back to either September or October.
September-October-November is usually when the tech giant releases its major Windows update of the year, but it could happen a bit early this time.
What’s new in Windows 11 22H2
As you would expect, the preview update includes a minor set of improvements that improve your overall experience.
For instance, Microsoft says it improved the detection of activity for voice input, which means you’ll notice a more pleasant experience while using live captions as well as voice typing.
In the case of File Explorer, Microsoft says it has fixed a problem where CTRL + Alt + DEL keyboard shortcuts would cause crashes to explorer exe.
Another issue has been resolved that caused the Settings app to cease to function, and users are able to see loading icons instead of icons from the system tray. Personalization > > Taskbar.
Microsoft thinks that the particular problem related to Settings could have resulted in certain explorer.exe crashes.
Microsoft has also fixed an issue that prevented live captions from appearing in some applications. This occurs when certain apps that were placed in the upper right corner of your screen, accidentally close the captions that live.
Other fixes and improvements are also available in Windows 11 Build 22621:
- Microsoft has fixed a problem that could cause Smart App Control to unexpectedly block apps.
- Fixing an issue that led to error code 0x800703E6 while copying files using Google Drive.
