Microsoft to end support for Windows 10 by 2025: Details inside
Microsoft's updated Windows lifecycle fact sheet states that the corporate will end support for Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and Pro Education on October 10, 2020
Microsoft has recently announced that it will end support for Windows 10 by 2025. The company’s updated Windows lifecycle fact sheet states that the corporate will drop support for Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, and Pro Education on October 14, 2025. This means that the US-based tech giant won't release any updates and security fixes after the said date.
While launching Windows 10, Microsoft said that this will be the last version of Windows but in a recent teaser, it confirmed that it will launch Windows 11 by end of June 2021. Microsoft's website has listed a replacement event, which can happen on June 24. At the event, the corporate will highlight everything that's coming ‘next for Windows.’
The event will kick off at 8:30 PM IST. Microsoft confirmed this news through their official Twitter handle. At the Microsoft Build 2021 event, the company’s CEO Satya Nadella confirmed the next-generation Windows update is going to be the foremost and a significant one among the past decade.
“Soon we'll share one of the foremost and very significant updates to Windows of the past decade to unlock greater economic opportunity for developers and creators. I’ve been self-hosting it over the past several months, and I’m incredibly excited about the subsequent generation of Windows,” Nadella said. Windows 11 is claimed to urge a serious UI overhaul.
As far as Windows 10 retirement goes, it looks like this version of Windows might last longer than 2025 as people took tons of their time to upgrade from Windows 7. Microsoft will likely give some time to people to migrate over to the new OS.
