What Does the Windows 10 End of Life Mean for Your Business?

What Does the Windows 10 End of Life Mean for Your Business?

After the major flop that was Windows 8 and the 8.1 Update, Microsoft hit a home run with Windows 10 in both the personal and professional contexts. However, Windows 11 is now in a position to succeed Windows 10, and Microsoft is making plans to end support for Windows 10. Here’s what you’ll need to know.

Windows 10 and Its End-of-Life Date

Did you know that Windows 10’s official end-of-life date has already passed? It was on June 13, 2023. Granted, this hasn’t meant much for most, as Microsoft is still currently supporting the operating system with crucial security updates and patches. It will continue to do so until October 14, 2025.

What’s Next for Windows 10?

After this deadline, it’s not like your software will suddenly disappear or stop working. All that will happen officially is that Microsoft will stop supporting the operating system with the security updates and patches required to stop potential vulnerabilities from causing security issues. You will also not receive any new features that might help you in a pinch. If users don’t upgrade, they could potentially be put at risk of a security breach, an issue that is further exacerbated if you use Windows 10 for business purposes.

Let Us Give You a Hand

Microsoft might occasionally offer extended support, but it generally does so at a premium cost that is simply not worth it. You can avoid this by upgrading to a newer version of the operating system, but again, this is not an easy feat in some cases. We can help you with your upgrade each step of the way.
