Microsoft launched their last Windows Phone more than 2 years back. While we saw a drop in support for Windows Phone by third-party developers since then, Microsoft ensured that the last of the Windows Phone users get timely updates and security patches.

However, this will change soon as Microsoft has finalized an end-of-support date for Windows Phone. According to a recent article published by Microsoft, the support for Windows Phone will end on December 10, 2019.

The company noted that Windows 10 Mobile, version 1709 will be the last update rolled out to Windows Phone users and they will receive security patches till December 10. Post that, using Windows Phone will be dangerous as Microsoft will no longer monitor vulnerabilities and provide support.

This might be the right time to move from Windows Phone to Android or iOS. We have no word on when Microsoft will launch the long-rumored Surface Phone or the Andromeda. Until then, switching to Android or iOS is the best course of action.
