Should I install this update?
If you are thinking of trying Windows 11, and finding out everything that the operating system offers us, unfortunately, you are not on the right track. This update, like all those that arrive from now on, belong to the development branch RS_PRERELEASE, which does not coincide with the Windows 11 experience that will come to all of us on October 5, 2021.
This new update is only intended so that the more adventurous users can try the latest news and fixes that Microsoft has implemented. But assuming all kinds of bugs and problems that may appear during testing.
Furthermore, Microsoft indicates that these new features do not pertain to any specific version of Windows. This means that some of these novelties could reach the Windows RTM version 11 through a cumulative update released on October 5, as indicated in the list of fixed bugs.
The best thing, if we do not want to have problems with Windows 11, is to wait for its final version on October 5, leaving aside the Insider channel.
