Microsoft: Windows Autopatch is now generally available

Microsoft says that Windows Autopatch, an enterprise service that automatically keeps Windows and Microsoft 365 software up to date, is generally available starting today.

Windows Autopatch was first announced in April when Microsoft said it would be available for free to Microsoft customers with a Windows 10/11 Enterprise E3 license or greater starting July 2022.

This new service automatically manages the deployment of Windows 10 and Windows 11 quality and feature updates, as well as driver, firmware, and Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise updates.

On enrolled tenants, Windows Autopatch moves the update orchestration from organizations to Microsoft, with the burden of planning the entire Update process no longer on the IT teams.

“We are pleased to announce that this service is now generally available for customers with Windows Enterprise E3 and E5 licenses,” said Lior Bela, a Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft.
