Microsoft has revealed that support for Windows 10 will end on October 14, 2025, with a new version of Windows, possibly called Windows 11, expected to be released by the end of this month. This contains the Home Pro and Pro versions of Windows 10 for Education and Workstations. This information was recently added to Microsoft’s official Windows 10 documentation.
According to Microsoft’s Lifecycle Policy page for Windows 10 Home and Pro, the company will “continue to maintain at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025.” It then goes on to say that ‘Windows 10 Home and Pro’ will be retired on October 14, 2025. This means that after that date, the IT giant will stop releasing upgrades and security fixes.
However, a recent teaser from the business revealed that Windows 11 will be released by the end of the month. It has announced a new event for June 24 on its website. According to The Verge, the firm will emphasize everything that is coming ‘next for Windows’ at the event.
At 8:30 p.m. IST, the event will begin. Microsoft’s official Twitter account confirmed the news. The user interface for Windows 11 is likely to be completely overhauled. Microsoft has been working on something codenamed ‘Sun Valley,’ which the corporation has described as a “sweeping visual renewal of Windows,” according to The Verge. There will be a slew of other improvements, including some major Windows Store updates.
In recent months, Microsoft has been working on a new app store for Windows, with rumours circulating that the shop will be available to all apps and payment platforms.
