Microsoft Tells People To Use iPhone Or Android Because Windows Mobile Is Set To Die

Microsoft’s late attempt to get into the mobile space was the Windows Mobile operating system.

The colourful, tile-based OS had its fans but ultimately failed to compete with Apple’s iPhone or the Android platform used by phones like the Samsung Galaxy or Google Pixel.

Now it’s been dealt its death blow as Microsoft has announced Windows 10 Mobile will not be receiving any support or updates by the end of the year.

The last version of the operating system was rolled out in October 2017, but the computing giant has continued to roll out security updates and fixes.

Microsoft has now confirmed that it will end support for Windows 10 Mobile on December 10 2019, meaning handsets running the software will no longer be secure to use.

Windows 10 Mobile struggled to compete against the strength of Android and iOS, particularly in terms of the choice of apps.

Microsoft is now recommending users opt for its former rivals.

‘With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device,’ the company writes on its online support page.

'Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices.’

The operating system also suffered for its inability to attract many smartphone manufacturers who wanted to adopt the software in the same way Android has.

Nokia was among the few to use it for its Lumia line of smartphones, until Microsoft eventually bought out its mobile division.
