Microsoft Windows 11 successor? Already? The tech giant will start development from March 2022.
Microsoft Windows 11 was rolled out just a few years ago and surprisingly Microsoft is already getting ready to release its successor with new design elements and features! The tech giant will kickstart development on Windows 12 from March, sources suggest. Since it’s still very early, there’s no indication of the features or new design elements that will come with Windows 12. Judging by the reports from Germany, Microsoft is likely to launch new versions of the operating system with flashy features and modified design to push people to upgrade. The German website Deskmodder.de has reported that this is the same release pattern as in all previous versions of the software before Windows 10. While sources have not been disclosed, the information is believed to have come from Microsoft itself.
Importantly, Windows 12 will be a very different operating system. It will likely drop some of the old foundation of Windows that exists in all versions of the operating system, including Windows 11. Reports also claim that Windows 12 requires a Microsoft account for home and Pro users, the Microsoft Pluton- security chip, and there are parts and bits of Windows 10X that will supposedly be used.
In addition, TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot will probably also play a bigger role than they do now. Therefore, it is speculated that the company will take security much more seriously this time around.
Meanwhile, Windows 11 was announced in June 2021 (launched for everyone in October 2021), while Windows 10 debuted in July 2015. Windows 11 offers a sleek new design with an almost unrecognizable start menu that stopped the Live Tiles. It also has a universal search function that looks through applications, files and messages stored on the operating system. Microsoft Teams users can even send and reply texts directly from the taskbar. And, crucially, it even gives users access to Android apps.
