Microsoft has issued an alert for some Windows 10 users. The 21H1 edition will soon be end of life. In a month the operating system will no longer be supported.
Along with the release of new cumulative updates, Microsoft warns that the next Patch Tuesday will be the last maintenance for Windows 10 21H1. Once this deadline is reached, the OS will no longer be supported. Clearly, it will no longer be the target of updates to plug flaws and fix bugs.
All “21H1” editions are concerned. They are heading towards the end of their support. If you are concerned, it is necessary to migrate to a more recent version of Windows 10 to benefit from maintenance. Currently it is 22H2 whose deployment is in progress. It is not necessary to recall that this small migration is free.
On December 13, 2022 Windows 10 21H1 will be discontinued
As we pointed out all editions of Windows 10 21H1 will reach end of life on December 13, 2022. After this date, no more monthly security and quality updates will be offered. These updates are “vital” in the sense that they provide protection against the latest security threats discovered.
Note that if your PC is eligible, a migration to Windows 11 is also possible. Again the operation is free if you have a legitimate license. This choice is probably the best option because this version is the big star of Microsoft’s catalog. This environment just received its first feature update. On the other hand, Windows 10 is still relevant but its evolution is now slowed down while its abandonment date is already known (2025).
