Windows Phone's terminal wind-down: Microsoft sets new sunset dates

Windows Phone's terminal wind-down: Microsoft sets new sunset dates

Today, Microsoft announced that this is soon coming to an end.

Updates to existing applications will continue to be supported. It's not like we weren't warned.

Last year Microsoft admitted that it was no longer releasing new hardware and features for its Windows Phone OS. The upgrade will not be made available automatically. It's unlikely many people will give a flying fig. Windows Cental's Zac Bowden indicates as much, saying that Microsoft plans to feature this on Windows Core OS device like the Surface Hub 2, Hololens and Andromeda as we've mentioned.

In with the desktop announcement, there's a second EoL which will affect an even smaller number of people. Even if you ignore the rather problematic Get Windows 10 campaign which was borderline malware at times in my opinion, you will notice attempts here and there that had the main objective of getting users of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 systems to upgrade to Windows 10.

The doom of Windows 8 Mobile is now being officialised.

Since her tweet further discussion of cultural appropriation has swirled on social media with "Jamie Oliver" trending on Twitter . Butler said the chef's branding was "not OK" and questioned whether he even understood the Jamaican style of cooking.

Microsoft has been gradually winding things down for Windows 8 and 8.1, along with Windows Phone 8, for some time.

As the tech giant Microsoft has long wanted to end support for these versions and this will be the most logical step for this to happen, prompting users to upgrade Windows 8 or switch platforms in the case of Windows Phone.

Windows Phone is dead, but Microsoft has released a new updater tool to keep your devices patched.

At least the new $250 handset will be getting security updates from Microsoft. Also here is not abnormal the end of the support, since it will be in early 2023 that the end of support extended to Windows 8.x will be terminated. Here's how your business can respond.
