Windows 10 will be supported until 2025, Windows 11 is coming

Microsoft has revealed that it will stop supporting the current operating system (Windows 10) on October 14, 2025. This means that Microsoft expects that the transition to the next version of Windows (ie Windows 11), which will be presented on June 24, will last about four years.

The company announced the news without much fanfare in a support page update, as found by the Thurrott site. In the past, the page noted when Microsoft will end support for certain versions of Windows 10. It now reports that Microsoft started supporting Windows 10 Home and Pro on July 29, 2015, and reveals the "date of departure" of the operating system. The end-of-support timeline sets the Windows 10 lifecycle to over 10 years.

Each of the half-year feature updates will continue to be unsupported on the expected dates, but whatever the latest version will remain supported until October 14, 2025. Currently, version 21H1 of Windows 10 is listed as supported until December 13, 2022 We do not yet know if another feature update is scheduled later this year to extend that date, or if Microsoft will simply change the date for the current version.

As for what we expect from Windows 11 (or whatever it is called), there will likely be a redesign, including a refreshed Windows Store. Microsoft recently canceled Windows 10X, which would initially be for dual screen devices. He said it would bring some features designed for this operating system to the standard version of Windows. Maybe this will make it easier for them manufacturers and developers to support dual-screen devices without having to work with a separate version of Windows.
