IT Home September 26 When Microsoft released Windows 11 in June, it promised that Windows 11 would provide 40% smaller cumulative update packages than Windows 10. Microsoft officials recently explained the new technology used in the improvement.
Microsoft explains that Windows Update is optimized for the update engine in Windows 11. For example, when a user checks for updates and a new patch is available, Windows 11 compares the new package to one that is already on your computer.
When Windows 11 updates are downloaded only from the server, the necessary parts are downloaded, reducing the update size by approximately 40%. Microsoft officials explain that the same mechanism would apply to services such as Windows Update for Business or Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Businesses can use configuration manager to manage drivers and critical security updates. On the other hand, optional updates for Windows 11 consumer versions have the same mechanism.
IT House understands that Microsoft is committed to the Windows 11 update process without much impact on users. Features such as time periods will be turned on by default, and Microsoft will use new AI/ML technologies to determine when users are not using their computers, automatically downloading update packages in their free time.
However, updates to Windows 11 still require you to restart your computer.
