Windows 10 1809 will end on May 12

Microsoft has just announced that the Windows 10 October 2018 update (Version 1809) will end on May 12, 2020. This means that users who use the modified operating system will not be able to continue to receive security updates after that date. The software giant recommends that users upgrade to newer versions as soon as possible to maintain the security of their devices, gain new features and other improvements.

Starting with the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft changed its previous support policy to push users to stick to the latest version of the system, thus avoiding spending too much effort on the old version.

According to the plan, the Windows 10 October 2018 update (Version 1809) will be terminated on May 12, three months later. Before that, everyone has plenty of time to prepare.

Previously, many people chose to postpone larger releases (such as the accidental purge of user data early in 1809) because version updates could lead to incompatibilities or unexpected conditions for some apps.

Microsoft, which suffered a succession of embarrassments, had to suspend the release of the update, and then continued to patch the system updates one by one, culminating in the “re-release” of the 1809 update in November 2018.

Fortunately, Microsoft has since adjusted the Process of Windows 10 system updates to a more cautious and streamlined experience. For friends who like to taste it, you might want to deploy the October 2019 update as soon as possible.”
