Microsoft reminds Windows 10 version 1909 users to upgrade to the newer Windows 10 version
As the major update, Windows 10 v1903 version has previously ended support, and its subsequent version, the minor update, Windows 10 v1909, is the same.
Microsoft has begun to use pop-up windows to remind users that this version is about to end support, and Microsoft will no longer provide regular updates or security updates after the end of support.
Therefore, users must promptly upgrade to supported versions such as Windows 10 v2004 version, 20H2 version, and the upcoming new stable version 21H1 version.
At present, these new versions have stabilized. Of course, monthly updates will still have various problems. Even so, users should arrange a time to complete the version upgrade.
The Windows 10 v1909 version released in October 2020 has an 18-month support period, and Microsoft will no longer provide updates when the support period ends.
The life cycle of this version is scheduled to end on May 11, 2021. On that day, Microsoft will release the final cumulative update to this version, and will no longer control this version thereafter.
The lack of security support provided by Microsoft means that even if security vulnerabilities occur, they cannot be fixed, which poses a serious security threat to users, especially enterprise-level users.
Currently, Microsoft is reminding users through a pop-up window through the system update module. “Your version of Windows 10 will reach end of service soon. Click to download a newer version of Windows 10 to stay supported,” the notification reads. Users who are still using this version can see the corresponding notification on the right side of the taskbar.
