Windows 11 is not yet two years old, but we already have the first information about the operating system that will follow it. Microsoft is already working on Windows 12, so we are going to tell you about the main news that is expected, the data on its future launch and all the data regarding this great renewal.
What will be the news and features of Windows 12?
Windows 12, according to data from Windows Central, will be a fairly modular version. Its main objective will be to become a system adapted to more devices with different form factors. Windows will be rebuilt from scratch, adding only what is necessary.
They want, in the same way, Windows 12 can be optimized for specific chips. They are working on a “silicon-optimized” version, fully adapted to the SoC that PCs mount. It is something similar to what Apple has been doing for some time with its Apple Silicon, to achieve better synergies between hardware and software.
Another of the great novelties will come from the hand of the “separation of states” (CoreOS). There is talk of a series of partitions that will not be accessible to the user. The goal of this split is so there can be faster updates, an improved factory reset, and a more compartmentalized and secure system.
A greater presence of Artificial Intelligence is also expected, with the integration of ChatGPT in Bing, a greater presence in Edge and throughout the entire operating system.
At the design level, changes related to the taskbar are expected, which would become floating (something similar to what we see in macOS). Similarly, there would be changes to the system icons and their location.
In addition to this, it is expected that Microsoft will continue to strengthen its commitment to services such as Your Phone (to connect Android devices). In short, a version that will arrive to be more modular, efficient and with some design changes that will redefine the current lines. For rest updates: Windows 12
What will be the release date of Windows 12?
It is too soon to know the official release date of Windows 12. But taking into account that Windows 11 was released in October 2021 and that the new cycle of updates from Microsoft has closed in three years, we expect Windows 12 to arrive in the last quarter of 2024. October is the most popular month, but there is no confirmation of any kind yet.
What will be the minimum requirements of Windows 12?
It is expected that, at a minimum, the requirements of Windows 12 follow the line of what we saw in the previous version. As a notable change in the system is expected, some points related to CPU and other PC components may increase. However, we will not know this information until the official presentation.
- 64-bit processor (ARM / x86) at minimum 1GHz
- 4GB of RAM
- 64 GB minimum storage.
- UEFI with secure boot support
- TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module)
- Minimum 9-inch screen 1,366 x 768 px
- DirectX 12 compatible GPU
- Internet connection
How will I be able to upgrade to Windows 12?
It is expected, in the same way, that it will continue to be possible to carry out a completely manual installation if we want to install the operating system in a cleaner way and from an external drive.
Except for the surprise, Windows 12 will be a completely free version for all those users of an active Windows 11 license. It will be enough to update our device to have a renewed license valid for the next version.
