Windows 10 Mobile support to end this year

Microsoft CEO giving up on Cortana? Wants it as a 'skill' in Google Assistant

Microsoft is planning to put its future mobile app development efforts behind the iOS and Android platforms, going forward.

MICROSOFT HAS QUIETLY ANNOUNCED that it'll stop supporting Windows 10 Mobile for good in December this year. Once a Windows 10 Mobile device hits the end of support date, that's it. Microsoft will have officially abandoned the OS and you'll be the owner of a paperweight.

David Ramel is the editor of Visual Studio Magazine.

Windows 10 Mobile users stopped getting new features and non-security related updates in October 2017 with version 1709. This has been shared by none other than Microsoft themselves, in a note published on their Support portal.

End of support does not mean that customers can't use their devices anymore; this will still be possible.

The automaker has kept him at its helm, even as Nissan and Mitsubishi moved swiftly to oust him as chairman after his arrest. On April 26, 2018, both Mitsubishi and Nissan had paid approximately 15.62 million euros in total to NMBV as a service fee.

Microsoft has updated the Windows 10 Mobile support page and while we all knew the operating system was dead, the end of support is here.

Microsoft's Team Xbox has a query for those of you running Windows 10: How can they make it better? While the news was expected, it comes as a blow as several peoples are still using the windows mobile across the world, owing to its build quality and performance. Without users, app developers had little reason to port their apps onto the Windows Phone operating system. In a recent update to the Windows 10 Mobile support page, a chance was noticed. Microsoft has tried for quite some time to make it happen, but to no avail. From 10 December 2019, Windows 10 Mobile will no longer be receiving security updates.

Windows 10 Mobile 1703 support ends on June 11, 2019. When that started to look less likely, it branched out to Android and iOS. The prior head of Window Phone Mr Terry Myerson said a little about its failure in March of a year ago.

Support ends even earlier for some devices.

Smartphones based on Windows 10 will continue to operate even after the closure of the support, but in this case they will become a tasty morsel for hackers who will easily be able to bypass their protection system, because it is very quickly outdated and, as a outcome, will be much less reliable.
