In a Microsoft support post with the details of the latest "Patch Tuesday" update for Windows 11 22H2, the company put in an extra note. It stated:
IMPORTANT After February 27, 2024, there will no longer be optional, non-security preview releases for Windows 11, version 22H2. Only cumulative monthly security updates will continue for the supported editions of Windows 11, version 22H2.

That means Microsoft wants people who are still using the 22H2 version to move on to the new 23H2 version of Windows 11 very soon if they still want to get new features such as Copilot and more.

While the non-security optional updates will end for Windows 11 22H2, people with that version of the OS will still get security updates for several more months at least. The lifecycle page for Windows 11 shows that the final security updates for 22H2 won't end until October 8, 2024.
