Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22454 Rolls out to the Dev Channel

As you see, now the build numbers in the Dev Channel are higher than the ones in the Beta Channel. This means that the Windows 11 builds you receive will no longer match the Windows 11 experience that will be launched on October 5, 2021.
