It’s been half a decade since Windows 10 was released, and the IT world is preparing itself for a big change. It’s recently been announced that Windows 11 is going to be released towards the end of this year, promising a cleaner, fresher feel than its predecessor but still with the familiar aspects that we all love about Windows.

Windows 11 is coming: What are its key features and benefits?

Windows 11 has been designed with the modern user in mind. We use our devices in every aspect of our lives from working, to chatting with friends, watching our favourite shows and playing games so it’s important that our devices can handle everything we throw at them.

As with any big new release, people wonder whether it’s worth upgrading and what they’ll gain if they do. We’ve put together some of the most important information so that you can find out if Windows 11 is right for you and your organisation. 

 

 

When is Windows 11 being released?

The exact Windows 11 release date is yet to be announced, with Microsoft’s website simply stating it will be ‘later this year’. However, various sources have speculated that it may be around October time. 

 

What are the benefits of Windows 11?

We all know that it’s going to look great, but how will Windows 11 benefit you and your team in the day to day? Read on to find out.

Working seamlessly with the Cloud

The new update has been designed with the remote and hybrid workforce in mind. The Cloud enables these workers to access their data and apps from anywhere, and Windows 11 acts as a gateway - seamlessly connecting with Cloud platforms and services. 

Collaboration

Windows 11 will integrate Microsoft Teams Chat and other functions into the taskbar, making it even easier for users to communicate and collaborate with their work colleagues whether they’re on Windows, Android or iOS. If the person you’re communicating with doesn’t have the Teams app that’s not a problem either, as you can talk to them through two-way SMS.

Productivity

Microsoft have simplified and sleekened the look of their new upgrade so that users can feel in control and use an interface clear of distractions. This creates a smoother workflow, enabling the user to work without being disturbed. 

Organisation

If you use one device for work and play, you’ll know it can be difficult to separate them both and keep hold of your work-life balance. Windows 11 has been built to help segment these different parts of your life, you can effortlessly create different virtual desktops with different apps and looks which the user can toggle between.

Security

Windows 11 has new built-in security features which provide you and your data with extra protection. This includes protecting users with passwordless authentication and securing data with encryption and malware protection.

Consistency for the user

The fear of the unknown is real when it comes to tech, we are all happier when we are familiar with the interfaces we are using. Users can upgrade safely in the knowledge that their apps and other tools from Windows 10 will continue to work.

 

 

How can I get Windows 11?

Users with Windows 10 devices will still continue to receive updates, enabling their data to remain safe and the user can still be productive. 

At Team Metalogic, we’ll be making sure that every new device we sell will support Windows 11 on release and in most instances new Windows desktops and laptops will be marked “Free Upgrade to Windows 11”.
