This summer Microsoft will end support for one of the most well-known versions of its operating system, the Windows 10 21H2. The latter’s users are advised to either upgrade to newer versions of Windows 10 or to Windows 11.
As reported by the Neowin website, as of June 13, the Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations versions of the 21H2 will no longer receive official updates, as well as security updates that protect against current cyber threats. The latest update for these versions will be released in early June.
Microsoft urges users of these systems to upgrade them to either Windows 10 or Windows 11 to avoid becoming potential victims of malware.
There is no official data on how many people in the world are using the 21H2version today, but it is known that Windows 10 is the most requested operating system among clients; 73.5% of PC owners use this version. At the same time, as of this March, the percentage of Windows 11 users exceeded 20%.
