Alert Details

Microsoft recently updated a public lifecycle document for Windows 10 Home and Professional editions, documenting a formal end of support date for the first time. Microsoft has always indicated more generally that support for Windows 10 would run for 10 years, and this document appears to finalize that exact timeline. There was no mention of the fate of Windows 10 Enterprise nor what support or upgrade options will be available to customers still running Home or Professional after that date.

On Thursday, June 24th Microsoft will host a livestream event, having invited customers and partners to “Join us to see what’s next for Windows”. Recently leaked images and even Dev builds of the new OS all but confirm that Windows 11 will be unveiled at the event and may become available soon.

Stay tuned for further updates from HeliX after the upcoming event and as more information becomes available.
