- Patch Tuesday constantly changes and tweaks all the features that Windows 10 has to offer.
- Keeping up with this ever-changing tech world requires renouncing the old and inviting in the new.
- No further updates will be brought to some of the older versions, which some people still use.
- Support period has been extended for some of the versions, while others are being scrapped.
The latest changes brought by Microsoft, through Patch Tuesday, also include some end-of-the-line warnings for some of the previous versions used by Windows 10.
Looks like the tech giant is clearly focusing on bigger, brighter things for the near future, so dealing with these loose ends is necessary in order to advance.
No more support for Windows 10 v1909, 1809, and 1803
As of this second Tuesday of the month, Windows 10 version 1803 has received its final cumulative update. No further support will be available for any users, meaning it’s time to move on to newer, more complete versions of the os.
Version 1809, added in October 2018 is still receiving support for the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC). Along with v1909, to which support is still available for Enterprise, Education, IoT Enterprise, will continue to receive updates until May 2022.
Also important to take note of is that the Windows 10 versions 2004 and 20H2 will still benefit from support with cumulative updates, since version 20H2 was just an activation package for some of the new features that were unavailable with 2004.
Windows 10 21H1 is just around the corner
When Windows 10 version 21H1 (May 2021 Update), is finally released, all three supported versions will receive the same patches.
For Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations, running on v1909, today was the final update that they will ever apply for.
Good things come to those who wait so, its safe to say that all these improvements that Microsoft brings to the table will do nothing more but make this beloved operating system even more reliable than it already is.
