Windows Phones have been awesome but the platform struggled
with things that never allowed it to grow, like the poor
management and decisions by Microsoft executives. And of
course, the lack of apps. But despite all these announcements
and setbacks, there are some people still using them.

Microsoft has pushed Windows Phone as a platform closer to its
death. The company has also stopped selling the handset at its
online store and removed the mobile related components from
latest SDKs.

Microsoft is once again removing mobile related components from
Windows 10 SDK, and it’s not a bad thing as the universal
platform continues to exist, and evolve.

Microsoft enthusiast Walking Cat today discovered that the
company software giant has deprecated the mobile driver
development in latest SDK of Windows 10 Redstone 5. The
universal and desktop driver continues to exist, and needless
to say, universal approach is apparently better than mobile.

“Mobile” driver development is deprecated in RS5 SDK, its
either “Universal” or “Desktop” now,” Walking Cat tweeted. It
appears that Microsoft is recommending the developers to
migrate the driver to Universal Windows Platform.

Microsoft’s attempt to remain relevant in the mobile world

Microsoft has given up on Windows Phone, but the company is
still working on mythical mobile device Andromeda or the
Surface Phone.

Microsoft launched Windows 10 Mobile with flagship phones the
Lumia 950 and 950 XL nearly two and a half years ago. When
Microsoft unveiled Windows 10 Mobile, the platform received
mixed-reactions as it didn’t seem to be finalized and Windows
Phone 8.1 was somewhat better.

Many diehard fans purchased the phones and supported
Microsoft’s mobile initiative as they loved the platform, but
the software giant treated Windows Phone hardcore fans with
nothing but disappointments.
