Windows Phone Is Dead….. Probably

If you’re someone who is one of the few users of the Windows Phone platform, I have some bad news for you. According to this document from Microsoft, the platform is dead as of today. What that means is that as of today, there will be no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates. In other words, you’re on your own if you’re a Windows Phone user. Now this really shouldn’t be a shock as Android and iOS dominate the smartphone market. And if you combine that with the fact that Windows Phone 10 is due to reach its end of support date in 2018, and the fact that Microsoft no longer makes its own phones, you have to think that the writing is on the wall for Windows 10. Probably. While it could yet rise from the dead like a Zombie, I wouldn’t count on it.
