In case Windows 10 mobile OS becomes obsolete, then the users will have to choose either Android or iOS, and this is pretty obvious.

While the American Corporation is advising all users of Windows 10 Mobile as soon as possible to move to other platforms, namely Android and iOS, which are supervised by Google and Apple respectively.

David Ramel is the editor of Visual Studio Magazine.

For Windows 10 Mobile users now looking to make the switch to Android or iOS devices, we'd recommend the OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy S9, or Google Pixel 3 for Android phones. The news doesn't come as a surprise as Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows 10, had made clear that they wont be focusing on new features or hardware for Windows 10 Mobile back in 2017. I actually quite liked Microsoft's mobile operating system.

Microsoft's Windows phone platform is dead and it's official now.

UK Says Second Brexit Vote Would Take Over a Year to Organize
Theresa May has made a surprise offer of Brexit talks with Jeremy Corbyn after surviving his attempt to topple her government . Opposition MPs are pressing May to abandon the main principles that have guided her Brexit strategy for the past two years.

After these bugs emerged, Microsoft faced calls to slow the pace at which new features are added to Windows 10 and to take time to ensure new releases are stable. Android appears to be receiving the bulk of Microsoft's support, with a launcher and more apps available there.

Microsoft kept its software and services confined to Windows Phone back when Microsoft had hopes of becoming a robust third-place smartphone contender.

"Of course we'll continue to support the platform. bug fixes, security updates, etc".

However, Microsoft has a tip for people still on the operating system: Go buy an iPhone or Android handset. According to the company, after December 2019 some features like device backup for settings will work until March 10th, 2020. There will be no more product or security updates for the Windows 10 Mobile operating system. They directly want to say that there will be no service for Window phone, and just a few Window phones are capable to survive until the last date. A less generous interpretation is that Nadella needs to support Microsoft's stratospheric share price by reducing R&D and other development expenses and slim-lining the company, thereby increasing profits even while revenue growth slows.
