Microsoft has announced the completion of the next major update to its operating system, Windows 10 21H1.

The company has released a fresh build 19043.928 for Windows Insiders, highlighting that this is the final build for Windows 10 21H1. The company also confirmed the official name of the update – Windows 10 May 2021 Update. The final version is already available for “clean” installation from a disk image (ISO file).

For ordinary users, Microsoft will begin distributing the Windows 10 May 2021 Update in the coming weeks.

Microsoft will release version 21H1 in a “service format” – as well as monthly updates, and version 20H2. The innovations are activated using a special key. As Microsoft promises, users of Windows 10 version 2004 or 20H2 will be able to update very quickly thanks to this approach. Similarly, the October version of Windows 10 20H2 is distributed, resulting in the transition from Windows 10 May 2020 Update (OS version 2004) to Windows 10 October 2020 Update takes only a few minutes.

Earlier, Microsoft confirmed the main features of Windows 10 21H1. This is not an overly impressive or overly large update that adds support for multiple cameras for Windows Hello and security related performance improvements:

  • Supports multiple Windows Hello cameras for default setting as external camera with both external and internal cameras;
  • improving the performance of Windows Defender Application Guard, including optimizing the time to open documents;
  • improved performance of the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Group Policy Service (GPSVC) update to support remote scenarios.

In addition, Microsoft continues to prepare a major UI and design update, codenamed Sun Valley, which will be part of the Windows 10 Cobalt or 21H2 release. For ordinary users, this version of the OS will be available in the fall of 2021, most likely in October.
