Windows 10 v1803 starts encouraging users to upgrade to a recent feature update

With support for Windows 10 version 1803 (April 2018 Update) for Home and Pro editions ending November 12, 2019, Microsoft started asking users showing a notification on the Windows Update page saying ” you are running a version of Windows that is nearing end of support. ” and asks users to “upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 now” to get the latest features and security improvements.

If you are still using Windows 10 April 2018 Update for some reason, if you now check for updates or visit the Windows Update page, it shows a notification recommending to upgrade to the recent feature update. This alert is good and also makes sense, but if you are afraid to upgrade to Windows 10 version 1903 due to issues, it is better to migrate to Windows 10 version 1809 as soon as possible.

What this means is that after November 12, 2019, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for the device you are getting now. Incidentally, the Windows lifecycle datasheet page provides more information and allows you to make informed decisions when upgrading to a specific edition of Windows 10.

End of Date Service for Windows 10 Editions

As of the release date, Microsoft provides security updates for Windows 10 Home and Pro editions for 18 months, after which that version will no longer be supported. While the Pro edition allows users to defer Windows 10 feature updates, the Home edition, however, does not support deferring feature updates and will receive new versions of Windows 10 before the end of service date.
