Microsoft suggested last week that Windows 10 would be its last operating system. At first, support for the OS was set until 2025, but it seems now the company has extended it by one more year.

Last week, the company released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (also known as version 1607), later refreshing the Windows support lifecycle database to signal a one-year extension for Windows 10 Enterprise. It is good to know that Enterprise is the version that is static and that doesn’t change during its lifespan.

This version of the OS is also named the Long-term Servicing Branch (LTSB) and comes with the best stability, latest features and newest options. The first LTSB build released for the public was back in July 2015 (version 1507). That version, along others launched then, was guaranteed support until October 14, 2025.

It is good to know that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) was also designated as an LTSB build, with Microsoft saying that it would periodically label new upgrades as LTSB so that companies could update if they want to. The newest LTSB build, based on version 1607, will be supported until October 13, 2026.

However, the same good news can’t be said for consumers or small businesses with computers running Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro, as those two will still be supported until October 2025.

As for customers who have adopted the original LTSB version, they will need to replace the LTSB 1507 with this year’s 1607 version in order to extend the support for the Windows 10 Enterprise version until October 2026, or else the support will end in October 2025.
