The developer preview of Windows 11 for the Developers team under the Microsoft Insider Program has went official. It’s available as a free upgrade to Windows 10 users. However, we still don’t have any information about the stable rollout of Windows 11 and most probably it’s going to happen in the coming months. The ISO file of Windows 11 is now revealed officially but there is an unofficial way too (via the UUP Dump tool) to download and install Windows 11 ISO 21H2 File. In this post, we are going to let you know how to do that!
Microsoft has announced its Windows 11 Operating System back in the month of June. The Windows 11 brings UI overhaul on the top of Windows 10, re-touched icons, centered taskbar, new User interface, native support of Android apps and redesigned Microsoft Store, and much more. It’s compatible with most of the systems but still, it requires TPM 2.0 and Secure boot, which is unavailable in selected PCs and systems.
