Microsoft announced earlier today that it has started rolling out Windows 11 version 22H2 to all eligible 21H2 devices. Therefore, such systems will automatically be updated to the latest Windows 11 2022 feature update after the gradual rollout phase. This may come as a surprise to many as support for Windows 11 21H2 is still nine months away. However, Microsoft believes that moving to a newer version will make user PCs more secure.
Around the same time, the company also rolled out a special compatibility update (KB5022609) for Windows 11 22H2 devices. Microsoft says this update will help improve installation and recovery of the 2022 Feature Update and applies to all Windows 11 22H2 versions. On the support page announcing the update, Microsoft writes:
