my device is not offered Windows 10 21h1

I do not have version 21h1 offered for my device yet. I am using Asus Vivobook S14 435 (new laptop). Intel Evo (i5-11th generation), Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB LPDDR4x ram, the latest SSD (512GB). When I got my device, it was at 2004 and was offered 20h2. I downloaded and installed it. I am not in the Windows insider program. When can I get it?

Hi,
Windows 10, version 21H1 is available for users with devices running Windows 10, version 20H2 and version 2004 who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update
It has been initially throttling up availability over the coming weeks to ensure a reliable download experience. As a result, the update may not be offered to you right away.

However if you insist on doing an upgrade to 21HI right now. You can use the Update Assistant to get 21H1 manually.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

If you choose this method, notice that it will do compatibility check at first, and take around a hour to complete. Make sure your laptop has power plug-in.
Since this version has just been launched, we still recommend that you wait for the update be offered to you.

Hope above information can help you.

Thank you! A confirmation from a Microsoft employee. I shall wait. I thought that my device has been bypassed 21h1. I am using 20h2.

You may try download and install it manually from the Windows 10 Download Center but I strongly recommend you to wait for it to become available, sometimes due to compatibility issue or need to perform more testing, it won't be offered to your device. So you have to update your Windows regularly and only install it when it was ready.

How long will it take?

You are referring to the time to download the Windows 10 or time you have to wait for it to become available?
In case, you refer to the download time, it depends on your internet connection speed and normally it is few hours.
In case you want to know when it will become available, we don't know , it really depends on many factors.

I will wait until update Tuesday and see. If no update, I will manually upgrade it.

Whenever possible post a share link for setupdiag.

Is setupdiag safe and easy to use? Have you received 21h1? Is there a way to let the Windows team know about it?
