Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore last year announced that no new
feature updates for Windows 10 Mobile will be released, and
recommended customers to switch to iPhone and Android if the
company’s mobile platform doesn’t meet their needs. Microsoft
would discontinue Windows 10 Mobile in late 2019, which means
that all of the phones will stop receiving the security
It looks like that Microsoft has quietly updated the support
page with more information about the next update for Windows 10
Mobile. More information about Windows 10 Mobile April 2018
Update has been spotted on Microsoft’s support
Microsoft’s support page is promoting Windows 10 April 2018
Update for phones and notes that the April Update includes
additional features and improvements for Windows 10 phone. The
company says that the Windows Phones will automatically
download and install the April update when available.
Furthermore, the page also provides instructions on how to get
the Windows 10 Mobile April 2018 Update. But if you’ll check
for updates on your phone, nothing shows up and it’s not known
whether all Windows Phones are supported. Microsoft has also
added a link to the list of supported phones but the
information is for Fall Creators Update.
It is also worth noting that there’s a good chance this is
just an error, and there’s no such thing as Windows 10 Mobile
April 2018 Update. But it could be possible that Microsoft is
developing a new update for Windows 10 Mobile with additional
fixes and improvements. Or maybe there’s something big
coming to Windows phones? Of course, not.
On the other hand,
Windows 10 April 2018 Update is already available for PCs,
and Microsoft could release the feature update to more PC users
on Tuesday, but it’s not clear if Windows Phones are part of
the rollout or not. On the same day, Microsoft is also expected
to release this month’s Patch Tuesday security updates for
Windows 10 Mobile.
Windows 10 Mobile will continue to receive support until the
late 2019 but it won’t be getting any new features, and no new
devices are planned either.
