Just a few days ago, we got to know that Microsoft would allow anyone to download the Windows 11 ISO and install it. It doesn’t matter if their PC didn’t meet the requirements. However, the interesting thing to note here is that unsupported PCs won’t receive security updates.
If you are installing Windows 11 through the normal upgrade process and your PC meets the minimum requirements; you will keep on receiving the updates as usual. However, if you install Windows 11 on unsupported PCs that doesn’t meet upgrade requirements, the tech firm might withhold the updates.
It is worth noting that the updates we are talking about here do not just feature updates. These also include security patches, according to a report from The Verge.
Moreover, this policy applies to the driver updates too. In other words, you might be forced to update your hardware the old way. You will have to download drivers for each hardware component of your PC.
Microsoft did not reveal all of this when it first announced the policies of Windows 11. There was no mention of withholding of security updates when the company announced that it would prevent users from installing Windows 11.

Microsoft Is Really Going To Implement This?
We cannot say for sure if Microsoft is really going to withhold security updates from Windows 11 users. If this turns out correct, users would want to stick with Windows 10. Since the number of security issues grows with each passing day. And the idea of running a PC without security updates is terrifying.
We hope that Microsoft doesn’t apply this policy at all. Or it should stop users from installing Windows 11 on unsupported hardware.
