Still using Windows 10 22H2? We’ve got some bad news for you
- According to Microsoft, Windows 10 will officially reach the end of support on October 14, 2025.
- The information refers to the Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Educations versions for Windows 10.
- After the mentioned date, devices running the Windows 10 OS will no longer receive security and quality updates.
Well, after a long and, lets say, admirable run, Windows 10 will finally get to hang up its gloves and go on a much needed vacation.
According to Microsoft back in 2021 and reinstated again in April 2023, Windows 10 22H2, the final version of the operating system, will stop receiving monthly security updates on October 14, 2025.
Its predecessor, 21H2, is also seeing its end of life this year. As noted from Windows’ site, the version will stop receiving releases and updates on June 13, 2023.
Understandable, seeing how when the company first announced Windows 10 in 2015, they mentioned that it will surely be the last version of Windows.
Windows 10 end of support: What does it mean?
Judging by the information available on the lifecycle page, Microsoft will continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025.
We are talking about the Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Educations versions, suggesting a clear fact, which is that time for the OS is slowly running out.
What this means is that after October 14, 2025, devices running the Windows 10 OS will no longer receive security and quality updates, and users will no longer be able to contact the company for support.
And even though there’s a long way to go before the operating system reaches the end of service, Windows 10 will be replaced until then with a newer version which might not be called Windows after all.
