End-of-support for Windows 10: Microsoft to send warning

If you are using Microsoft Windows versions such as 1507,1511, or 1601, don’t freak out on receiving a pop-up message notifying you about the end-of-servicing of the version of your OS. While Microsoft displays end of life notification on the older versions, such as Windows 7, Windows 10 is yet to see this feature.

What does end of support mean?

When a Version of Windows reaches the end of support, it no longer remains aided with security patches, or receiving the new updates. By displaying a warning pop-up on the screens of the users’ computers, Microsoft only aims at letting the users know to update to a newer version to keep getting new features and security improvements.

Windows Update Warning

Windows Latest first spotted the warning, popping up inside Windows Update on one of their machines running on Windows 10 1803. This version of Windows is likely to get the end-of-support life, later this year.

In a Support Document Microsoft clearly mentioned that it would start updating the older versions of Windows 10 soon.

“When Windows 10 devices are at, or within several months of reaching, end of service, Windows Update will begin to automatically initiate a feature update. This keeps those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health.

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update will reach end of service on November 12, 2019 for Home and Pro editions. We will begin updating devices running the April 2018 Update and earlier versions of Windows 10 in late June 2019 to help ensure that we keep these devices in a serviced, secure state.”

While you may find this periodic pop up nagging you up, it is a great way applied by the Microsoft users to keep reminding its forgetful users that the company would stop providing free support for several versions of Windows 10.
