Microsoft usually releases two new versions every year that means that roughly every six months, it starts rolling out a newly updated version of the operating system. However, many don’t get them and are stuck with the older versions.
The company is also very cautious about how it rolls out updates and how the new update affects the user’s system. And thus, the update rollout is very slow and may take months or even a year for it to be available for everyone.
If you haven’t received the latest update, you can skip the compatibility hold and update to the newer version. But, if you are running an older version of the Windows OS and are not experiencing any issues or don’t want the newly introduced features by Microsoft, then it’s better to wait for the update to be available for your system.
