Microsoft has revealed the end of life date for its latest operating system, Windows 10. The soon to be released OS will reach its end of life support date on the 14th of October 2025, despite previous reports suggesting that Windows 10 would be the ‘final’ version.
The new end of life date was revealed on the Windows life-cycle fact sheet, which shows that mainstream support for Windows 10 will end on the 13th of October 2020, with extended support set to end five years later. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide regular updates for the software or any technical assistance.
Previous reports earlier on in the year suggested that Windows 10 would move things to a ‘windows as a service’ direction. At the time, many took this to mean that Windows 10 would end up being the final version and would just be continuously updated over time, rather than revamping everything every few years.
This new end of life date seems to contradict that so we may end up seeing Windows 11 at some point after all.
