What's Next for Windows Event 2023: News and Announcements

What's on the horizon?

What's next for Windows? We don't yet know.

The last big announcement—Windows 11—was in 2021. Windows 10 was first released in July 2015, around two years after Windows 8.1.

What Is the Date for the Next Windows Event?

We don't yet know when the next Windows event will happen.

The next Microsoft event is Microsoft Build from May 23-25. It will focus on Microsoft and open AI's full-stack AI platform. There's an in-person conference in Seattle, and parts of the event are available online.

The Windows 11 event occurred virtually on June 24, 2021, at 11 am ET. Windows experts had patiently waited for a significant update to the operating system, but rumors about the timing were never precise.

What Was Announced?

The June event showcased a new version of Windows called Windows 11. It features improvements to the interface, a new Start menu, and more. As of early 2023, the adoption rate for Windows 11 is around 15 percent, according to StatCounter.

In March 2019, ZDNet reported that Windows 10 was on more than 800 million devices. This number falls short of its 2015 goal of getting the operating system on 1 billion devices within two or three years. Some of that discrepancy between expectations and reality could be related to the demise of Windows Phones.

The company says Windows 10 will reach its "end of life" in 2025.
