Following on from the recent leaks surrounding Microsoft’s plans for a Windows 12, many of us are extremely interested in any possible features, particularly if there is going to be any AI included.

AI has taken over recently, and every major tech company has jumped onto the bandwagon. Microsoft especially, who have bankrolled OpenAI alongside developing Microsoft Copilot and Security Copilot, their new cyber-security AI. In light of the recent noise around AI, it’s not a farfetched assumption that a Windows 12 could feature its own artificial intelligence.

In light of the above – a recent report from Windows Central has suggested that rumored “upgrades for ‘Windows 12’ will modernize the OS with AI.” This is based on the word of “sources who are familiar with Microsoft’s plans,” so there’s an element of hearsay to these claims.

However, while ‘Windows 12’ is still unconfirmed, who’s to say it’s even coming at all?

Could ‘Windows 12’ be powered by AI features?

Microsoft is apparently attempting to create a ‘modernized’ version of the OS, again we can thank Windows Central for this, and using artificial intelligence to enhance their foothold on the operating system market could be the perfect way to do this.

In the past, we’ve seen very slow movements between Microsoft’s OS launches, and honestly, very minimal changes too. However, the rumor that “AI features being developed include the ability for Windows to analyse content on display and provide contextual prompts to jumpstart projects” seems to change everything.

If this rumor proves to be true, Windows 12 could end up changing everything.

We could be seeing a ‘Windows 12’ launch some time in 2024, according to the Hudson Valley development cycle announced by Microsoft in 2021, which would release a major version of Windows every three years.

We’re going to be keeping an eye out for the latest news surrounding Windows 12, so make sure to check back in with us periodically for the latest.
