Not only will this change the new release schedule developers adopted when Windows 10 was introduced in 2015, but it will also mean fundamental changes to the planned upgrade schedule for Windows 11.
According to the aforementioned media, the anticipated arrival of Windows 12 will force Microsoft to remove a Windows 11 update scheduled for 2023.
