The public preview of Windows Autopatch is now available

You must remember that the Autopatch service was first announced in April, if you have a good memory.

Microsoft announced at the time that it will be broadly accessible in July 2022 and that it would be free for users with a Windows 10 or 11 Enterprise E3 licence or higher.

The Windows Autopatch service has now reached public preview, according to the latest update from the Redmond-based software giant.

For enterprise updates, the Autopatch function automates the deployment of Windows 10 and Windows 11 quality and feature upgrades, drivers, firmware, and Microsoft 365 Apps.

According to Microsoft, the service will launch in July, so the public preview allows interested people an opportunity to try it out a few weeks ahead of time.

You will almost certainly want to use such a service, but you should be aware that there are some requirements.
