Microsoft reveals when support for Windows 10 Mobile will come to an end

Microsoft has revealed that the company will cease to support Windows 10 Mobile in January 2019. The company has yet to roll the release out to consumers, but already we have an idea as to when we can expect to see those still rocking this version of the OS to cease receiving support. As well as the date, Microsoft has also published details as to what kind of support the mobile operating system will receive.

"Microsoft will make updates available for the Operating System, including security updates, for a minimum of 24 months after the lifecycle start date. These updates will be incremental, with each update built on the update that preceded it. Customers need to install each update in order to remain supported."

For the time being, you'll need to hold off for Windows 10 Mobile, unless you're either an Insider or have the new Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. It's an important date to note as this will be when the initial release of Windows 10 Mobile will hit end-of-life. More details can be found on the Microsoft website.
