Microsoft typically releases 2 major updates to its operating system, Windows 10, every year. And as usual, over time, the software giant abandons old versions of it, in favor of new versions. For this reason, Microsoft is preparing to drop Windows 10 version 1809.
Starting November 10, when Microsoft releases the next Patch Tuesday, version 1809 will reach what is also known as end of life. After that date, devices that are still running Windows 10 1809 will no longer benefit from monthly security updates and other updates that contain protection against the latest threats.
Windows 10 1809 has reached end of life
Obviously, Microsoft recommends that you upgrade your devices to the latest version of Windows 10, as it will no longer be supported by the company. We must not forget that the support for version 1809 was particularly long, and we cannot point the finger at the company for lack of support. Initially, it was expected that its end of life would take place on May 12, 2020, but the company has decided on a six-month extension due to the coronavirus health crisis. These six months were more than enough for individuals and businesses to update their equipment. In addition, it has been known for over a year that he lost his support in May 2020, and that this only happens now in November. However, it should be remembered that this is not valid for the Enterprise, Education and IoT Enterprise versions, as they continue to be supported until May 11, 2021.
For those who don’t know, Windows 10 1809 is the October 2018 update, that is, a version with more than 2 years of existence, and the most recent is version 20H2.
