Microsoft ends support for original Windows 10 version 1507 this month

Windows 10 has changed a lot since its original version released back in July 2015. Since then, the company launched three important updates for its operating system: the November Update, the Anniversary Update and the Creators Update. All three of them introduced fresh features and essential changes leading to important improvements to the operating system. But having different versions of the same operating system can cause issues because supporting multiple branches is not the most feasible thing to do.

Starting May 9th, Microsoft will end support for 1507

Microsoft previously planned on updating only two “Current Branch” for Business versions of Windows 10 at a time.

Starting May 9th, Microsoft will end support for the original release known as 1507. The company’s initial plan was to stop updating it starting March 26th, but it seems to have pushed that deadline back.

Businesses that haven’t updated will be able to continue using Windows 10, but they’re not going to receive updates anymore. If they still want to continue receiving them they’ll, unfortunately, have to move to a newer version of Windows.

Ending support isn’t going to really affect most of the consumers as Windows 10’s update approach has promised users that they’d always run the most up-to-date version of the OS.

The company recommends users update to the latest version of Windows 10 by going to Microsoft’s software download page and clicking “Update now”.
