Windows 10 21H1 is ready for business use


Windows 10 21H1 has already passed a first round of beta testers under the Windows Insider Program last month and is now running Windows 10 soon 20150. Devices included in the Windows Insider Program For Business program can now get the same update through the traditional channels including Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Azure Marketplace or by downloading the ISO file.

Microsoft emphasizes that Windows 10 21H1 will be launched as an enablement package to companies for devices running version 2004 or Windows 10 20H2. This allows dormant functions in previous versions to be activated for a quick update process that limits bandwidth.

“Customers running Windows 10 version 2004 or 20H2 and wanting to update will experience a quick update process because it feels more like a monthly update,” Microsoft said.
