Do you still remember the BlackBerry OS that was declared obsolete a few years ago? Now one more operating system is officially declared obsolete or retired, namely Windows Phone. Microsoft itself has set a retirement date for Windows Phone. On the Microsoft support page entitled “Windows 10 Cellular Support: FAQ” a number of questions were answered about decreasing support for the Windows Phone platform.

Under the question “What should Windows 10 Mobile customers do now?” Microsoft recommends that Windows Phone users “move to an Android or iOS device whose ecosystem is still good.” The Windows Phone device will no longer accept security on December 10 this year. Although third-party applications can continue to support Windows Applications, Microsoft will no longer support the platform. But if we look at the facts on the ground, many application developers are not very interested in this platform, so the number of applications is limited.
Devices in Windows 10 Mobile version 1709 will receive patches of security support until December 10 while Lumia 640 and 640 XL in version 1703 will only last until June 11, 2019. Microsoft recommends those who still have Windows smartphones to manually make backups using default tools. before the retirement date arrives because after that, the tools will be deleted. To backup go to Settings> Update & Security> Backup> Other Options> Back up now. As for Cortana, Microsoft has positioned the voice assistant not as a competitor for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, but to praise the platform. Do you still use Windows Phone from you?
