Windows 11 2022 Update receives support for two years, there is no expiration date for Windows 11 as a whole

Now that the Windows 11 2022 update is available to customers, Microsoft has updated its official documentation to provide information about the support window for its latest operating system. Like its predecessor, OG Windows 11 21H2, Windows 11 2022 Update has a life cycle of 24 months.

The 24-month support period is valid for systems with consumer-facing SKUs such as Home, Pro, Pro Education, Pro for Workstations, and SE. Those using the Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 11 receive one additional year of support.

According to Microsoft, Windows 11 2022 Update or 22H2 will expire on October 14, 2024 and October 14, 2025 for client and enterprise editions, respectively. Interestingly, Microsoft is not ready to announce when it plans to stop supporting Windows 11 at all – the official documentation only says “In Support”, slightly downplaying the rumors about the upcoming Windows “12”. However, Windows 10 is scheduled to retire on October 14, 2025.

Speaking of Windows 10, Microsoft recently reminded customers that it is going to end support for Windows 10 version 21H1. The last release of this release will be updated on December 13, 2022. If you’ve already left Windows 10 behind and moved to Windows 11, stay tuned for the latest Microsoft announcements posted today in our dedicated roundup.
