    Windows client roadmap update April 27, 2023

    22H2 is the final Windows 10 version.

    Last Updated: 27 Apr 2023 at 13:18

    We realize that a clear Windows client roadmap update helps consumers and organizations with planning their Windows release activities.

    Today we'll provide a brief update on the latest version of Windows 10, as well as share more on the time frame for the next Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) release of Windows 11.

    Windows 10 support lifecycle

    As documented on the Windows 10 Enterprise and Education and Windows 10 Home and Pro lifecycle pages, Windows 10 will reach end of support on October 14, 2025. The current version, 22H2, will be the final version of Windows 10, and all editions will remain in support with monthly security update releases though that date. Existing LTSC releases will continue to receive updates beyond that date based on their specific lifecycles.

    Recommendation

    • We highly encourage you to transition to Windows 11 now as there won't be any additional Windows 10 feature updates.
    • If you and/or your organization must remain on Windows 10 for now, please update to Windows 10, version 22H2 to continue receiving monthly security update releases through October 14, 2025. See how you can quickly do this via a servicing enablement package in How to get the Windows 10 2022 Update.

    The final end of support date for Windows 10 does not change with this announcement; these dates can be found on the Windows 10 Lifecycle page.

    Windows 11 LTSC

    It's important for organizations to have adequate time to plan for adopting Windows 11. Today we're announcing that the next Windows LTSC releases will be available in the second half of 2024:

    • Windows 11 Enterprise LTSC
    • Windows 11 IoT Enterprise LTSC

    We'll provide more details as we get closer to availability.

    Recommendation

    If you're waiting for a Windows 11 LTSC release, you can begin planning and testing your applications and hardware on the current GA channel release, Windows 11, version 22H2. Check out App confidence: Optimize app validation with Test Base for more tips on how to test your applications.

    Stay informed

    In the future, we will add more information here and to the Windows release health page, which offers information about the General Availability Channel and LTSC under release information for appropriate versions.

    Tell that to the ones who can't update with unsupported hardware and no updates in the future... Such an idiot M$ move! In 2025 it's STRAIGHT to Linux!

    or go from Win10 regular to Win10 LTSC, which I have already done on some of my old PCs as most W10 LTSC editions have longer support beyond 2025, haha!

    People and even some banks and ATMs are still using XP or 7 and MS releases security updates.

    Still on Windows XP? Update Manually or Get Wormed
