The new option appears for compatible devices after applying the KB5020683, which became available as an out-of-band install for versions 2004, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2, and 22H2 on November 30. According to the official notes, the update KB5020683 “provides eligible devices with the option to upgrade to Windows 11 as part of the OOBE process. This update will be available only when an OOBE update is installed.” The update applies to Windows 10 Home as well as to Pro. This is not the first attempt to remind users to upgrade. If you have a computer that meets the minimum requirements to run Windows 11, you will receive different offers to upgrade after installing a cumulative update or, occasionally, randomly after restarting the computer. In the case that you’re still on Windows 10, the upgrade to Windows 11 is free and easy. You can install the new version in many ways, including through the Windows Update settings, Update Assistant, or perform a clean installation of Windows 11 with a USB bootable flash drive. If you are hesitant, since the release of version 22H2, Windows 11 has shown to be more stable and reliable, even though sometimes cumulative updates introduce new issues, but this is also the case for Windows 10.
