Microsoft today released the first major update to Windows 11 (22H2) for its new operating system, which went public about a year ago. At the same time, the software giant announced that support for Windows 10 will continue until October 2025.
“We remain committed to Windows 10 and will continue to maintain Windows 10 through October 2025.”– said John Cable, head of Microsoft’s software product management department, during an interview with reporters.
This means users can take the time to migrate to a new version of the Microsoft software platform. Even though Windows 11 keeps getting better and new features, Windows 10 is still a good alternative. Also, Microsoft hasn’t announced an end date for the free upgrade to Windows 11 yet. It follows that you can switch to Windows 11 for free for a long time.
Note that Microsoft’s announcement of support for Windows 10 until 2025 is nothing unexpected as the software giant talked about it last year. At the same time, it was announced that support for Windows 10 will end on October 14, 2025. While Microsoft encourages users to upgrade to Windows 11, it’s clear there’s no need to rush.
