All Support For Windows 10 Will End In The Next Four Years Says Microsoft

Sun Jun 20 2021

Microsoft have announced they’ll be ceasing all support for Windows 10 as of the 14th Oct, 2025

As we announced earlier this month, a new version of Windows will be released this month, however, Microsoft have followed up that announcement in a Windows lifecycle document, that support for Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro Education and Pro for Workstations would end by 14th October 2025.

That’s no tech support for any issues, no software updates and no patches or fixes.

 

This will be the first time since it was announced back in 2015 that Microsoft have mentioned an end date for Windows 10.

 

Windows 10 was first introduced on 29th July 2015, with a free upgrade offer to Windows Vista and Windows 7 customers, receiving at least two updates a year since then, and now accounts for 14% of Microsoft’s total revenue,

 

There’s been a lot of chatter of the last few months of a big Windows shake up coming, with an event scheduled on the 24th of this month to “unveil the next generation of Windows”.

 

CEO Satya Nadella has confirmed he’s been testing the new version himself, teasing that the new version will offer more opportunities for creators and developers.

Although a name is yet to be announced for the new version, hints have been focussing on… Windows 11.

Rumours have also been flying that Microsoft might announce a Windows Store Revamp to offer more flexibility to developers when distributing their software.
