Windows 10 Pro systems will receive a proactive invitation to update to Windows 11 in April 2024. These systems depend on Microsoft for updates.

Microsoft is busy pushing current Windows 10 users to upgrade to Windows 11. According to the tech giant, this stems from security concerns but perhaps also to give another boost to the disappointing adoption of Windows 11. Support for both Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro will end on Oct. 14, 2025.

Inviting non-managed pc’s

Recently, therefore, Microsoft announced that it will invite Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Pro Workstation systems to migrate to Windows 11. These systems are not managed by businesses and are thus entirely dependent on the tech giant for their updates. These invitations will be sent in April with that month’s Patch Tuesday update.

Specifically, the invitation appears when users reboot their systems after installing the security update. They can then update to Windows 11 23H2 or stay in the running Windows 10 version. In addition, the update invitation appears only on those systems that meet the technical requirements for Windows 11.
