Windows 10 Mobile support comes to an end in December. Microsoft stopped developing features for Mobile OS 2017, but with this news, all updates end, noticing a final death on a once-promising mobile operating system.
All support comes to the end
Microsoft recently updated its support page for Windows 10 Mobile to note the status change. After December 10, all Windows 10 Mobile on the 1709 building will stop receiving any updates, whether they are security related or not. The company will also cancel any free support options or online technical assistance.
Users on building 1703 will end up support even earlier on June 11, 2019. If you wonder about 1803 and 1809, these buildings have never made it Windows phones.
Some services will end later
After the support, Windows phones will continue to work, but some features will eventually be shut down. Automatic and manual backups for settings and apps will end after March 10, 2020. And services such as image transfer and device recovery will end December 2020.
Your next move should be to switch to a new mobile operating system
Microsoft says it best. Switch to Android or iOS:
When Windows 10 Mobile OS stops support, we recommend that customers move to an Android or IOS supported device. Microsoft's mission to empower each person and organization on the planet to achieve more forces us to support our mobile apps on these platforms and devices.
If you are one of the few murderers who have stuck out so long, you can find welcome surprises. Microsoft apps on iOS and Android have exceptionally good support and offer features not seen on Windows phones today. Both an iOS and Android version of Outlook are available with an iOS and Android version of OneDrive. And if you need any help, we decide that a phone really stood out last year.
