Microsoft reported officially which started last Thursday (5) the process of automatic updating of computers still using Windows 10 1809 to version 1909.
"Starting today (Thursday), we will slowly begin the phased process to automatically initiate a feature update for devices running the October 2018 Home and Pro editions (Windows 10, version 1809) while maintaining support for these devices with critical monthly updates for ecosystem safety and health, "the company said.
Windows 10 v2004 arrives in 2020, no date set yet
"We are starting this release process several months before the service end date to provide adequate time for a smooth upgrade process," the company added.
As Bleeping Computer points out, version 1809 will no longer be supported from May 12, 2020 on Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations editions. After this date, computers that have stopped in the October 2018 update will no longer receive any future quality and security updates.
Although very rare, however, nothing prevents Microsoft from making updates available for highly critical security vulnerabilities that could have a major impact on unmet releases.
Bleeping Computer recalls that this happened in May this year when Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, even officially already off the list of supported systems, received updates to address the Remote Code Execution Vulnerability (CVE-2019-0708).
Last month, Microsoft also began upgrading devices running Windows 10 1803 in Home and Pro editions to version 1903.
For those using Windows 7 – which will no longer be supported by Microsoft from January 14, 2020 – there is still a chance to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. In the video below, we show a step-by-step guide to getting started. update.
