Windows 10 Mobile support expires in December. Microsoft discontinued the development of features for the mobile operating system in 2017, but with this news, all updates are over and a final death has been marked for a once-promising mobile operating system.
All support is nearing its end

Build 1703 users will receive support earlier – June 11, 2019. If you're wondering about 1803 and 1809, those builds never made it to Windows Phones.
Some services will be stopped later
Windows Phones will continue to work after the support ends, but some features will eventually be closed. The automatic and manual backups for Settings and Apps will be discontinued after March 10, 2020. And services like photo upload and device recovery will be stopped in December 2020.
Your next step should be to switch to a new mobile operating system
Microsoft says it's best. Switch to Android or iOS:
With the end of Windows 10 Mobile OS support, we recommend that customers switch to a supported Android or iOS device. Microsoft's mission statement, which enables individuals and organizations around the world to do more, forces us to support our mobile apps on these platforms and devices.
If you're one of the few heroes that last so long, you may find this welcome surprises. Microsoft apps for iOS and Android are exceptionally well supported and offer features that are not available in Windows phones today. There is both an iOS and an Android version of Outlook, as well as an iOS and Android version of OneDrive. And if you need help with the decision, we believe a phone really stood out last year.
