Windows 11: Users can get a free upgrade on October 5! Microsoft announces Win11 update process

Microsoft has promised that the Windows 11 update process will reduce the “impact on users.”

In other words, functions such as active time will now be turned on by default, and Microsoft will use the new version of AI/ML machine learning technology to determine that users are not actively using the PC time to ensure that they will be disturbed as little as possible.

The Windows update will be automatically downloaded at this time and the user will be prompted to install it after completion.

It is worth noting that the update process of Windows 11 will not be significantly faster than Windows 10, so users still need to restart the computer, and then stare at the screen for a few minutes to tens of minutes.


For Microsoft, one of the biggest benefits of Windows 11 that allows you to upgrade is that it can make your PC smoother, and of course they do.

Microsoft said that they have put a lot of effort in memory management to better support applications running in the foreground. Let them use more CPU and other system resources first.

According to Microsoft, after the launch of this feature, it has brought an average 32% memory/37% CPU usage optimization.

It is conceivable that, combined with all these operating system/application optimizations, Windows 11 can also bring longer battery life.
