After the release of Windows 11, Microsoft established a three-year replacement schedule, that is, Windows 12 is expected to be officially unveiled in 2024, or at least will go into beta around that time. Whether Windows 12 will look different than the Windows 11 is yet to be seen but it will surely be more intelligent as more and more use of artificial general intelligence is baked into brains of operating systems.
If this experiment is successful, Microsoft will have a strong edge over Apple whose AI assistant, Siri has not even made its way to MacBook line of computers.
Panos Panay of Microsoft revealed that Microsoft is building an operating system that blurs the boundaries between the cloud and the edge and integrates a large number of AI technologies. The outside world has speculated that this is hinting at Windows 12.
With the explosion of ChatGPT, Microsoft is investing billions of dollars in OpenAI, the brain behind it. Coupled with the rumors that Bing will integrate ChatGPT, it has become a shadow evidence of Windows 12.
According to what ApoTheTech heard from sources, in Windows 12, OpenAI-related technologies will support many system applications such as clocks, photos, mail, calendars, cameras, and microphones.
