How we're rolling out the free upgrade to Windows 11

The free upgrade to Windows 11 starts on October 5 and will be done in phases and measured with a focus on quality to make sure we're providing you with best possible experience. That means new eligible Surface devices will be offered the upgrade. The upgrade to Windows 11 will then continue to roll out over time to other existing Surface devices based on hardware eligibility, reliability metrics, the age of your Surface, and other factors that impact the upgrade experience. If you have a Windows 10 PC that's eligible for the upgrade to Windows 11, Windows Update will let you know when it's available. You can also check on your own by going to Settings > Update & SecurityWindows UpdateCheck for updates.
