Microsoft suggests users to switch to iPhone

In 2010, Microsoft first announced Windows Phone 7. The company has placed really high hopes for this operating system, hoping to become the third largest player in the smartphone market. Alas, expectations did not materialize and now Microsoft is forced to officially announce the imminent cessation of support for its OS. As a solution, the company invited its customers to move to competing platforms – iOS or Android.

According to a statement by Microsoft, since 10 December 2019 smartphones based on Windows 10 Mobile will no longer receive updates (including security fixes). Technical support will also cease to exist in due time. However, the company recommends that you promptly go to another platform.

After the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile we recommend customers to switch to the supported device with Android or iOS. The mission of Microsoft is to every person and every organization on the planet could do better, and so we seek to support our mobile applications in these platforms and devices.

That Windows 10 Mobile will cease to exist, it became known in October 2017, when the corporate Vice President of Microsoft Joe Belfiore announced on the future of the project. According to him, the company was struggling — actively supported developers, including financial, creating them convenient tools. Alas, but for the most part publishers have not shown due interest in the platform, because of its small market share.
