Microsoft will continue to update Windows 10 operating system after recently announcing its successor, Windows 11, and prepares several novelties that will arrive in the update of the second half of 2021 (21H2).
Windows 11 was announced on June 25 with the features that will succeed Microsoft’s current system, but the company reaffirmed its commitment to maintain Windows 10 support until 2025, so that it is maintained for devices that do not meet the minimum requirements of the new system.
In Windows 10 update 21H2, which is expected to arrive in October this year, Microsoft will allow users to log in via Windows Hello with external cameras from closed laptops or connected with ‘dock’, as stated in the system documentation. In addition, the new Windows 10 update will allow the use of the TPM key attestation function – which uses cryptographic certificates for greater security control – with the Tiger Lake processors with Intel TPM.
For its part, the company has also made a commitment on GitHub to make it easier for business users to manage features on demand and language packs when using WSUS or Configuration Manager.
