Microsoft Won’t Update Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft Won’t Update Windows 10 Mobile

| On 10, Oct 2017

Microsoft Corporation has given up to provide software for smartphones.

Windows 10 chief Joe Belfiore announced that the company will no longer continue with providing upgrades for Windows 10 operating system for mobile phone. In a tweet, he, however, explained that the company will continue to support users.

“Of course we’ll continue to support the platform… bug fixes, security updates, et cetera,” said Belfiore. “But building new features or hardware is not the focus.”

Belfiore noted that the Microsoft “tried so hard” to have app developers, even to the point of writing codes for them, but users are relatively low for investment.

This announcement came a week after HP announced that it would no longer release handsets that are powered by Windows OS. It has also been disclosed the Bill Gates himself also switched to Android.

However, there are some handset manufacturers that released new units that are powered by Microsoft. UK’s Wileyfox and Germany’s Trekstor are among others.

Windows 10 is accounted for the .03% of the global market – based on phone shipment – according to research company IDC.
