Microsoft announced a new end-of-support deadline for another Windows OS version. The Redmond giant made it clear that the next Windows OS to reach end of service is Windows 10 version 1709 (aka Windows 10 Fall Creators Update).
Microsoft will release the last update for Windows 10 version 1709 Home, Pro, and Pro Editions today, April 9, 2019.
What does this mean for Windows 10 v1709 users?
Devices running this OS version will no longer receive updates including security fixes which are critical for your system’s security.
However, Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10 version 1709 will still receive updates for another year as this version was released last year on October 17.
Windows 10 April 2018 support ends in November
