Microsoft had earlier announced that it will be pulling of support for its Windows 10 Anniversary Update version 1607 on April 10, 2018. As expected the company killed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update yesterday.

The Patch Tuesday update released to the Windows 10 version 1607 was the last update the company released for the AU users. Windows 10 users who are currently running version 1607 are advised to upgrade to the company’s latest version of the operating system to stay up to date with security fixes.

Microsoft had released the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 users in the summer of 2016 and had promised 20 months of servicing after the official release.

The end of support currently only effects users running version 1607, but does not apply for Windows 10 devices running Enterprise SKUs. The company has already confirmed that the Enterprise users will be getting security updates until October 9, 2018.

Microsoft is already ready to release its newer version of the operating system Spring Creators Update with version 1803 to Windows 10 users and with the company killing support for Anniversary Update users, it is recommended that they update their devices to the latest version once it is official released to all Windows 10 devices.

Microsoft has already discontinued support for its original version of Windows 10 November update (version 1511) and is expected to end support for its next version Windows 10 Creators Update in the month of October this year.

Since the company has already finalised the RTM build for its newest version 1803, users are requested to update their devices to its latest version.

If any of our users are currently running version 1607, they are advised to upgrade to Windows 10 Spring Creators Update by joining the Insider Program on Release Preview Ring or wait for the public roll out expected in couple of weeks time to stay up to date.
