Microsoft will roll out Windows 11 later this year but that doesn't mean Windows 10 users will be left completely in the cold. Security updates will continue to be provided until 2025 and it seems Windows 10 users will also still receive feature updates.

Windows 10 version 21H2 will drop in October

Windows Latest reports users of Windows 10 will get an update to version 21H2 in October. This is a feature update designed for users who can't upgrade to Windows 11. The new version of Windows 10 will get some minor now features, including new Windows Hello controls.
With Windows 10 May 2021 Update (version 21H2), Microsoft enabled support for multiple Windows Hello cameras when external and built-in Windows Hello-capable cameras are present on the device.

Starting with version 21H2, you can use an external Windows Hello compatible camera when the laptop is closed or docked, according to the updated support document.

In another document, Microsoft said TPM attestation will be supported on Intel TPM Tiger Lake platforms with Windows 10 21H2 or higher.
Windows 11 is causing a lot of controversy online due to its stricter hardware requirements. In particular, a lot of users are upset because Microsoft is no longer supporting a lot of older processors as well as systems without TPM 2.0 support. Despite being more than fast enough to run Windows 11, a lot of older Windows 10 machines will have no upgrade path.

While we don't expect Windows 10 will get a lot of feature updates after 2021, it seems Microsoft isn't entirely dropping support just yet.
