Earlier this year, in May, when Microsoft had confirmed via a blog post that Build 22621 was the Windows 11 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) RTM candidate. It had also released some additional details which kind of hinted at the potential general availability date for the next major Windows 11 feature update. Although not set in stone back then, it was pretty obvious that the event was happening after September 5.

As it turns out, our guesstimation was probably pretty spot on as there are now multiple reports alleging that Microsoft is going to be making Windows 11 22H2 (codenamed Sun Valley 2 or SV2) public on the 20th of September. It will be apparently be served via the Windows Update option in the Settings.

For those on Windows 11 21H2, which is the original release, it should be a seamless upgrade process as the system requirements haven't changed.

Here is a quick rundown of all the features users can expect on the next Windows feature update though some of them could appear in the future with new "Moment" update that is said to come out later.

  • App folders in Start menu
  • Re-sizable pinned area in Start menu
  • Drag and Drop on the Taskbar
  • Focus Assist integration with Notification Center
