However, with Windows 10 and 11, Microsoft is taking a different approach. Instead of service packs, smaller cumulative updates are regularly released that contain security updates, bug fixes, and occasionally new features. These updates are typically released monthly as “Patch Tuesday.”
There are also larger semi-annual feature updates called “Windows 10 Releases”. These updates like April 2024 Update, October 2023 Update, etc. introduce new features and improvements to the operating system. They are similar to the service packs of previous versions of Windows, but have a more regular release schedule.
However, it is possible that Microsoft's update strategy will change in September 2023/2024. Therefore, you should consult Microsoft's official website or other reliable sources to get the latest information about Windows 11 updates or Windows 10 updates.
