Microsoft will end support for Windows 10 Mobile, previously known as Windows Phone, also implied that consumers change to iOS or Android tablets.

Windows 10 Mobile consumers on the most recent variant 1709 will no longer get new security upgrades, non-security hotfixes, free aided service options, or online technical information upgrades beginning December 10, 2019.

With support end in under a year, everything if Windows 10 Mobile users perform? Microsoft is advocating a change to an iOS or Android apparatus.

“Microsoft’s mission statement to enable every individual and every company in the world to reach more compels us to encourage our Mobile programs on these programs and devices,” the service page states. Microsoft’s Office products are offered for the two iOS and Android, or so the business will still have an existence in smartphones after Windows 10 Mobile shuts down. It would be smart to change to some other apparatus before Windows 10 Mobile service finishes.
