Support for Windows 10 Mobile version 1703 ends today
Support for the original Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update (version 1703) is ending today. It means Windows Phones such as Microsoft Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL will stop receiving the monthly cumulative releases.
If you’ve got a handset with Windows 10 Mobile version 1703, the Build 15063.1868 is likely to be the last update for you.
As per Microsoft’s Windows lifecycle factsheet, Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update branch has now reached its official End Of Support. Going forward, Microsoft will only update Windows 10 Mobile version 1709 handsets such as the Lumia 950, Lumia 650 and others.
It’s also worth noting that support for Windows 10 Mobile version 1709 will end in December 2019 and no new monthly updates will be released to any Windows Phone device in 2020.
Remember that developers are working on desktop-based Windows 10 Mobile Shell and it could give a new life to your flagship Windows Phones.
