Microsoft invites you to switch to iOS or Android

As of December 10, the company will no longer offer security updates for its Windows 10 Mobile system.

A mistake?

The curtain will definitely lower on the Windows 10 Mobile platform. Microsoft has announced on its support page that it will stop security updates as of December 10. The American giant, which has thrown in the towel, is now officially advising its customers to use a competitive smartphone: "With the end of Windows 10 Mobile OS support, we recommend customers switch to an Android or iOS device," the company writes.

This deadline does not mean that mobile devices running on Microsoft's mobile operating system will stop working. They will simply no longer be supported and therefore will no longer be able to receive security updates. Microsoft specifies that only devices eligible for version 1709 of Windows 10 Mobile will receive technical support until December 10. For the Lumia 640 and 640 XL, whose 1703 version was the last compatible, support will stop six months earlier, on June 11, 2019.

However, Microsoft is not drawing a line on mobility and will focus on developing its apps for iOS and Android, such as those in the Office 365 suite. "Microsoft's mission, which is to empower every person and organization on the planet to do more, requires us to support our mobile applications on these platforms and devices," the company explains.
