A major Windows 11 update is almost ready and should be out in the foreseeable future. However, Microsoft keeps the intrigue to the last and does not announce the release date. But the other day, a fresh leak appeared, which reveals the cards a little.
It was previously reported that the update would be called 22H2 or Sun Valley 2. However, now network sources have announced a new name – Windows 11 2022 Update. This confirms the release date for the current year and introduces a new update naming scheme. This is indicated by the appeared screenshot of the advertising message. It has text on it: “You are now using the Windows 11 2022 update! Read on to find out about the new features and customize everything the way you like it.”
The screenshot itself is currently gone, copies of it are already on the network. It should also be noted that the name of Windows 11 2022 Update has not yet been officially confirmed, so this may be just one of the names of the future update.
Microsoft has confirmed that build 22621 is the final version of Windows 11 22H2, and leaks suggest that the update could be released as early as September 20 this year. And in October and November, the rollout will be accelerated to reach a larger audience.
In terms of new features, Windows 11 22H2 should return the ability to “drag and drop” files and shortcuts to the taskbar. Also expected is a new Task Manager, an improved Start, faster context menus, Windows Spotlight for the desktop, and support for File Explorer tabs.
And earlier, a former Microsoft employee told how they created the logon sound for Windows 8.
It’s cooler than Apple and Microsoft: Intel introduced the Unison program for synchronizing messages and photos between iPhone, Android and PC
Intel has announced a new program called Unison that will allow you to connect iOS and Android smartphones to PCs with Intel processors. This will make it possible to actually transfer all the main functions of smartphones to a PC. This program was shown along with a PC with a sliding screen.
The new program will allow you to make and receive calls on your PC using your smartphone, send and receive text messages, transfer photos and files, and receive various notifications.
It’s somewhat similar to the Link to Phone app in Windows 10 and Windows 11, but Unison offers more options. If Link to Phone only works with Samsung smartphones and some other brands, then the new system will appear for all mobile devices. At the same time, the iPhone version will be slightly less functional – this applies to text messaging and managing third-party applications. All this is due to the restrictions put forward by the company from Cupertino.
At the first stage, the new feature will be available only to owners of laptops based on 12th generation processors released by Acer, HP and Lenovo. These laptops are part of the Intel Evo program. After the release of models on chips of the 13th generation, the list will expand.
Note that there is a similar one on the MacBook, where you can synchronize data with the iPhone. Now the same is expected on Windows.

New MIUI feature introduced: Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones can now change the style of the battery icon
Xiaomi on the official page on the Weibo social network has introduced a new MIUI firmware feature for Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones.

By selecting the appropriate MIUI theme, users can freely customize the battery icon style, shape, size. Various options are provided.
