Microsoft has announced their plan to end service for several of their widely-used mobile operating systems. Here’s the timeline:
- Windows Embedded CE 6.0 is scheduled to end service on 6/10/2018
- Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld is scheduled to end service on 6/9/2019
- Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 is scheduled to end service on 1/14/2020
What about Windows 10 Mobile, the versatile OS that supports ruggedized mobile devices for many organizations? Since Windows 10 follows the Windows as a Service lifecycle, it depends on the version of your device. That means your devices may end support on 1/9/2018, or may be supported until 12/10/2019.
