Windows 10 Mobile support
Microsoft is all set to end support for Windows 10 Mobile later this year. The company isn’t going to release any new feature but it’ll still deliver the security updates until December 2019. After December 2019, Microsoft can leave its mobile platform behind once and for all.
Microsoft recommends users to move to an Android or iOS device when Windows 10 Mobile is discontinued, emphasizing that all of its apps are available on these platforms too.
“With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device. Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices,” Microsoft explained.
