Microsoft has quietly extended mainstream support for its old Windows Phone 7.8 operating system by a few more weeks. It was supposed to end over a week ago on September 9 but now Microsoft has listed a new end date of October 14.
It's currently unknown why Microsoft decided to add a few extra weeks for mainstream support, but there you have it. Assuming the company doesn't make yet another extension, Windows Phone 7.8 will not receive any more new features or major performance improvements after October 14.
Why do you think Microsoft decided to keep mainstream support going for Windows Phone 7.8 for a little while longer? Thanks to Cristian for the tip
