Microsoft releases new versions of Windows 10 according to the schedule and also regularly completes support for legacy OS versions. The Computerworld portal collected all the key release dates until 2020, when Windows 7 support ends.

With the release of Windows 10, Microsoft switched to the concept of “Windows as a service.” The company follows a repetitive, predictable release schedule and a timetable for completing support for older versions.

When will Windows 11 come out?

Business users and IT staff can use this calendar for planning infrastructure updates. To keep up with the schedule of “Windows as a service”, designate these dates in your diary.

October 9, 2018

There should be a release of Windows 10 (version 1809) on the semiannual channel (Semi-Annual Channel), which can be called October 2018 Update. It is possible to delay the release until the end of October – this is due to the fact that the version 1803 was released almost two months later than the original Microsoft graphics. The time frame for the release is 6-8 weeks.

Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) for Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro users will be completed. Release of the update took place in early 2017.

According to Microsoft, the period of support for the version begins with the release of the update functions, and not with the expected target date in March or September.

Support for outdated versions will end on Tuesday patches – the second Tuesday of the month after 18 months or 24 months after the release. For example, April 2018 Update 1803 started to be deployed on April 30, 2018, which means that the 18-month support period will end on October 30, but full support will only end on November 12, the nearest Tuesday patches.

The company was cautious when announcing an additional 6-month support cycle – it was intended only for versions 1511, 1607, 1703 and 1709, and for 1803 there was no information.

Microsoft will complete support for Windows 7. By that date, organizations will need to complete the migration to Windows 10.

It is expected that by 2020, Windows 7 will remain on a large number of computers – the figures are announced in 42% of the market share. Therefore, Microsoft is unlikely to give up such a huge market.

For how long will the support be extended? Most likely – for 12 months. It is this timeframe that the company offers users Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education as part of a paid program of advanced services.
