Win11 is about to receive a wave of heavy updates: 10GB of patches to save you from now on
Microsoft released Win11 22H2 last September, the first annual update since the release of Win11, and there is still a bit of time for 23H2 this year, but there will be a heavy update next week on 28 March, this time with UUP updates enabled and patches up to 10GB in size.
UUP stands for Windows Unified Update and Microsoft's thinking now is to reduce the content of each update and increase the speed of the update, which is what UUP will do, requiring 30% less update capacity to be downloaded and reducing the number of reboots required to try not to torment users.
However, the first UUP update will require a large pre-downloaded patch of up to 10GB, and a patch update number KB5023706, which does not contain any other fixes, is expected to be released on March 28, mainly in preparation for the UUP.
Microsoft explained that the patch size is so large just because of the one-time distribution, after that all updates for Win11 22H2 will be the UUP method and the size will be the same as before.
It's worth mentioning that in 2023 Microsoft will also release the "Moment 3" update, the previously mentioned Win11 23H2, which is expected to be released in the second half of the year.
In addition to optimisations for folding screen devices, Moment 3 could also bring updates to the Windows search interface and more inbox apps, which could modernise their UI design even further.
In addition to these features, there will be a large number of message pop-ups that will be changed in 2023 to align with the design language of Win11 and make it less fragmented.
