Washington: With a new version of Windows, possibly called Windows 11, due to be launched by the end of this month, Microsoft has announced that support for Windows 10 will end on October 14, 2025. These include the Windows 10 Home Pro and the Pro versions for education and workstations. The tech giant recently updated its official Windows 10 documentation to include this information. On Microsoft’s Windows 10 Home and Pro Lifecycle Policy page, the company stated that it will “continue to support at least one biennial channel of Windows 10 through October 14, 2025.” Listed below are the retirement dates for Windows 10 Home and Pro on October 14, 2025. This means that the technology giant will no longer announce updates and security solutions after that date.
However, the company’s recent teaser has confirmed that it will launch Windows 11 by the end of this month. The company has listed a new event on its website that takes place on June 24th. According to The Verge, the company will highlight everything that ‘comes next for Windows’. The event starts at 20:30 IST. Microsoft confirmed this news via its official Twitter handle. Windows 11 is expected to receive a major UI overhaul. According to The Verge, Microsoft was working on something codenamed “Sun Valley”, which the company calls “a visual rejuvenation of Windows”. There will be many other changes, including major Windows Store changes. Microsoft has also been working on a new app store for Windows over the past few months, and rumors have it that Microsoft will open its store to all apps and competing payment platforms.
