Microsoft have revealed their plans to retire Windows 10 in 2025, as it is on the cusp of launching a major revamp of its Windows operating system later in June.
This decision comes despite the fact that following Windows 10’s initial launch, Microsoft stated that this system would be its last version of Windows.
Microsoft revealed further details by adding that as of October 14th 2025, it will be longer releasing any updates or security fixes for either its Home or Professional versions of Windows 10.
Furthermore, Microsoft are under no doubts that its newest operating system will be an absolute gamechanger and represent the most significant updates to its operating system in the last 10 years.
This follows the recent retirement of its operating system, Windows 7 last year. Despite this, businesses can still pay Microsoft to allow them to continue to receive updates for Professional and Enterprise versions of this software.
If you didn’t already know Windows 10 was released back in 2015 and was labelled as ‘Windows as a service’ which meant that the software was automatically updated whenever required at no extra cost to the user.
Microsoft’s latest OS system is due to be launched at a virtual event on June 24th with the added pressure of needing to impress as it is currently facing increased competition from both Google and Apple in this market.
