Our measured and phased approach to the rollout of Windows 11 means we will offer the upgrade via Windows Update when data shows that your device is ready, as our objective is to provide a good upgrade experience, says Microsoft. In case Microsoft detects an issue, such as an application incompatibility, the system will put a safeguard hold in place, and won't offer the upgrade until that issue is resolved.
