In our previous issue, we advised that we'll be turning on the in-place upgrade feature for remaining Windows 10 v1909 devices to update them to v20H2 in March. In the meantime, work progressed in the background on the preparation of a Windows 10 v21H2 build for eT4L devices. A pilot in 20 schools has commenced, testing the F12-rebuild function to install 21H2 across a variety of devices. In addition, these schools will be testing a new in-place upgrade for existing 1909 devices to move to 21H2 - without the need for a rebuild and deletion of local files and installed applications.
Following successful completion of this pilot, Information Technology Directorate intends to generally release Windows 10 v21H2 for schools as both an F12 rebuild and an in-place upgrade for v1909 devices initially. It is anticipated that this release will occur during the April school holidays.
