    Should I Wait for Windows 21H1?


    Hey all! Word on the street is the new Windows version 21H1 is planned to come out this month. I don't want to install 20H2 only to have to do a big update a few days later, don't like installing Windows on top of Windows, always has little issues that trigger me like leaving files behind, resetting settings or reinstalling bloatware among other things. So should I wait or go ahead with 20H2? I'm assuming 21H1 will most likely be riddled with bugs and instability on launch, because it's new right? Thanks Should I Wait for Windows 21H1? :)

    :)

    Should I update to 20H2 or wait for 21H1?

    Welcome to Ten Forums.

    To go from 1909 to the next version, whether that's 20H2 or 21H1, is a major feature update that will install new system files and save your old system to a Windows.old folder. This can take up to an hour to install, whether you go for 20H1 or wait for 21H2.

    The update from 20H1 to 21H2 however will then be a minor feature update, a small enablement package that turns on dormant features and installs in a few minutes, just like a cumulative update. I'd go for 20H2 now, the update to 21H1 will then be quick when it's released - plus it will be optional so you can wait to see if others report problems before deciding to update.

    With any major upgrade, it is a wise precaution to make a system image of your current system before you start. Many here use Macrium Reflect Free for that purpose.
