Microsoft Suggests Windows 10 Mobile Users Switch to iOS or Android as Support Winds Down

With support for the now-discontinued Windows 10 Mobile devices
set to end on December 10, 2019, Microsoft is recommending that
its current Windows 10 Mobile customers move to an Android or iOS
device instead.

Microsoft made the recommendation in a Windows 10 Mobile

support document
(via
Thurrott
) explaining its plans to stop offering
security updates and patches for Windows 10 Mobile.

With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that
customers move to a supported Android or iOS device.
Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every
organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to
support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices.

Microsoft ended support for Windows Phone in

July 2017
and stopped active development on Windows 10 Mobile

in October
of that year, leading to the death of the
platform. Microsoft struggled to get app developers to write apps
for the device, and it was also never able to establish a strong
user base.

With the abandonment of Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft has been
focusing on other platforms and has a wide array of apps
available for both iOS and Android devices.

All customers who have a Windows 10 Mobile device will be able
to keep using it after December 10, 2019, but no further
updates will be available.
