Microsoft today released the Win11 KB5030316 update to members of the Windows Insider project in the Beta channel. After users install it, the version numbers rise to Build 22621.2271 and 22631.2271.
Microsoft’s usual blog post highlights the differences between the two versions:
- Build 22621.2271: Disable new features by default
- Build 22631.2271: Enable new features by default
