When it comes to mobile devices, Microsoft hasn’t exactly been in the limelight on that front. In fact, at the moment, the mobile market is mostly populated by iOS and Android devices.
However, if you are a user of Windows 10 Mobile, it looks like the time has finally come, to give up on the operating software, according to some new developments.
Microsoft has confirmed that after the 10th of December, there will no longer be support for Windows 10 mobile phones. This means that the operating system will not receive any more updates, patches, or hotfixes. It will be essentially dead in the water, and if there are any bugs or vulnerabilities, Microsoft will no longer be interested in fixing it.
To that end, Microsoft has also recommended users to switch to a different operating system.
While Microsoft may no longer be in the race as far as mobile operating systems are concerned, the company still hasn’t completely given up on their mobile ambitions yet.
Just a couple of months ago, Microsoft unveiled the Surface Duo, a foldable smartphone that runs on Android. There is no word yet on how much it will cost but it is expected to be released in 2020.
