Lenovo has begun testing Windows AutoPilot with early adopters

Last June, Microsoft announced Windows AutoPilot, a set of tools that would be included in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and allow for PCs to be deployed without IT administrators ever having to touch the device. The device ID is uploaded to the OEM, along with the configurations options like an Azure AD account, Intune, and more, and everything is automatically set up.

At the company's Ignite 2017 conference last year in September, Microsoft announced that HP and Lenovo will be the first to support AutoPilot in January. Of course, January has come and gone without an update, but earlier this week, Lenovo posted some new information on its blog, as spotted by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley.

Claiming to be the first third-party OEM to announce support for the service, Lenovo says that AutoPilot is already in testing with "selected early adopter customers", and it will be generally available in the coming months.

Of course, the first OEM to announce support for the feature is the first-party OEM, Microsoft. Windows AutoPilot has been available since January for the newest Surface Pro, Surface Book 2, Surface Laptop, and Surface Studio.

There's no word just yet on when AutoPilot will be coming to HP PCs, although we've reached out to the company for comment.
