Microsoft last week rolled out a new update for default Mail app on Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile. With the latest update for the Mail app, Microsoft is once again phasing out the references to Windows 10 Mobile, the company’s discontinued mobile platform.
Interestingly, the latest update for Mail app has replaced the default signature “Sent from Windows 10 Mobile” with “Sent from my Windows 10 device,” as the latter makes more sense.
It certainly makes sense as Microsoft is slowly phasing out Windows 10 Mobile and the company will stop delivering security updates to the operating system in late 2019. The “Windows 10 device” signature will promote all Windows 10 devices instead of just Windows 10 Mobile.
It’s worth noting that you can always edit the signature from the Mail app settings and revert the changes.
Microsoft to end support for Windows 10 Mobile in 2019
Windows 10 Mobile is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft that no longer has a future but there are users sticking with it, for the time being. Some have switched to Android or iOS and others are waiting for the Microsoft Andromeda, the dual-screen device
Windows 10 Mobile impressed in several regards and there are lots of people who continue using it. The lack of app support is still a deal-breaker for many users and while it’s getting worse, Microsoft hopes that the Progressive Web App will eventually contribute to the growth of Windows Store.
Even without any big updates, Windows Phone works really well in 2018 apparently because Microsoft is still updating the essential apps for those who want to use the phone for basic stuff. Unfortunately, for other basic stuff, you’ll have to stick with web-based versions of most services.
