Microsoft released its last Windows Phone two years ago. With the withdrawal of third-party developers and the cliff-like decline in market share, Nadela announced to abandon the platform but will continue to provide timely patches and security updates for Windows 10 Mobile. A few days ago, Microsoft finally decided on the end date of Windows Phone platform.
Microsoft said that only Windows 10 Mobile 1709 qualified device models will be supported until the end date. For Lumia 640 and 640 XL, Windows 10 Mobile 1703 is the last supported operating system version, and its support will end on June 11, 2019.
Officials stressed that termination of support meant that products or security updates for Windows 10 Mobile would no longer be available. Microsoft recommended that customers migrate to Android or iOS devices after termination of support for Windows 10 Mobile.
