Intel has now updated the drivers for their line of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adapters. The drivers being rolled out update both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers to version 22.160.0.

The highlight of this update is Intel’s Wi-Fi driver 22.160.0 support for Windows 11 22H2 (Windows 11 version 2022). However, the same cannot be said for the Bluetooth driver. Hopefully, it will be included in a future update.

Additionally, starting with the Wi-Fi version 22.100, Intel will include an INF file with the driver installation that will include support for all Intel Wi-Fi 6E adapters.

That said, the Intel Wi-Fi driver 22.160.0 does not include updates for the following device families:

  • Intel Wireless 7265 Family (Rev.C)

Closing Words

Intel has included the support for Windows 11 version 2022 for the Wi-Fi 22.160.0 driver. However, Microsoft will also be releasing Windows 10 22H2 very soon as well, but there is no mention of it from Intel. Furthermore, the Bluetooth driver is yet to support the mentioned operating system versions from Microsoft.

But not to worry. We think that Intel is already on the task and will include updates for other operating system versions in the near future. For now, we recommend that you update to this version of drivers since they also include security patches to keep your systems safe.
