Windows 10 no longer gets feature updates

Microsoft will no longer release feature updates for Windows 10. The company reported this in its Windows Client Roadmap update, which aims to inform consumers and organizations about the (im)capabilities of Windows versions.

As documented in the lifecycle pages of Windows 10 Enterprise and EducationAnd Windows 10 Home and Pro operating systemsSupport for Windows 10 will end on October 14, 2025. The current version, 22H2, will be the last version of Windows 10. However, all versions can continue to rely on monthly releases of security updates until that date. Existing Long Term Service Channel (LTSC) releases will continue to receive updates based on their specified life cycle after that date.

“quickly switch”

Microsoft strongly encourages users to quickly move to Windows 11, as no additional feature updates will be released for Windows 10. It should be noted that not all PCs are in any way hardware compatible with the new operating system. If you or your organization must continue to run Windows 10 at this time, update to version 22H2 to continue receiving monthly security updates through October 14, 2025.

According to Microsoft, it is important for organizations to have time to plan for adoption of Windows 11. Therefore, the company announced that the following Windows LTSC versions will be available in the second half of 2024: Windows 11 Enterprise LTSC and Windows 11 IoT Enterprise LTSC.
