Time to step up! The Windows 10 May 2019 Update, also known as version 1903, is set to reach end of support status next month. On December 8 to be precise.
This means that this version of the OS will no longer receive security updates after this date.
As is usually the case, new Windows 10 updates that make their way out in the first half of the year only get 18 months of support. And if you are still rocking this version, then you should know that Microsoft now recommends that you install the November 2019 Update, also known as version 1909.
Redmond is now pushing this update automatically to PCs that are still running the version 1903 to keep them protected in the following months with the latest security patches and system updates.
Of which there are many.
According to the latest AdDuplex survey, 22% of Windows 10 PCs were still on version 1903 last month, compared to 32.4% that had already deployed version 1909.
And since both versions share a common core and update process, the migration from 1903 to 1909 should take less than 10 minutes. If you are ready to get started, simply fire up Windows Update to get things rolling. Just back up your important files before you proceed.
Windows 10 version 1909 will get 30 months of support like all versions of the OS get that are released in the fall.
Should set you up a fair bit, this.
