Microsoft extends support for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions

Even though some enterprises have adopted Microsoft’s rapid update cycle of Windows 10, many enterprises asked Microsoft for more time and flexibility in the Windows 10 update cycle. Based on the feedback, Microsoft today announced that they are extending the support cycle of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions to 30 months.

All currently supported feature updates of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions (versions 1607, 1703, 1709, and 1803) will be supported for 30 months from their original release date offering more time for change management as enterprises move to a faster update cycle. Also, all future feature updates of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions with a targeted release month of September (starting with 1809) will be supported for 30 months from their release date. This will allow customers with longer deployment cycles the time they need to plan, test, and deploy.

Microsoft also announced the following changes:

  • All future feature updates of Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions with a targeted release month of March (starting with 1903) will continue to be supported for 18 months from their release date. This maintains the semi-annual update cadence as our north star and retains the option for customers that want to update twice a year.
  • All feature releases of Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, and Office 365 ProPlus will continue to be supported for 18 months (this applies to feature updates targeting both March and September).
