We have two key dates for the end of the Windows 10 lifecycle; or what is the same, when Windows 10 will stop receiving updates and support. Before this happens, it is best to have upgraded to Windows 11, since using an operating system that no longer receives security updates carries risks.

The end of support for Windows 10 will be staggered; All versions prior to the latest will be abandoned first, and then the final version a year later. It is best to always have the latest version, in terms of security and functionality.

What the end of support for Windows 10 means

Windows is an operating system software that is released in versions every few years. Even if there is a new version of the OS, such as Windows 11, for a certain time the manufacturer continues to update with some new features and security updates to the previous version of the operating system, Windows 10, in this case.

When the end of support arrives, Microsoft will stop “working” on this version and, therefore, Windows 10 will not receive updates of any kind.

The fact that updates that solve bugs and errors stop arriving means that if a new vulnerability or security breach in a computer is discovered, the devices will no longer be protected.

Another problem arising from the end of support is that apps and new hardware will no longer be compatible after a while. Application and software developers will no longer take this into account with the new updates they release. Most popular apps may continue to work temporarily, but there will come a time when they stop working.

Windows 10 end of support dates

  • June 11, 2024: The penultimate version, Windows 10 21H2, will no longer receive update support, and you can continue to safely use Windows 10 by updating to the latest version: Windows 10 22H2, if possible.
  • October 14, 2025: This date is marked as the end of support for Windows 10 22H2, which is the latest version, and therefore end of support for Windows 10. After this date, security updates will not be received, and use the operating system will begin to carry risks.

Upgrade to Windows 11

For all of the above, moving from Windows 10 to Windows 11 is the most recommended in terms of security and functionality, especially before its lifecycle ends. In addition, the next Windows 11 update is scheduled for September 2024, of which big changes and innovations are rumored.
