Windows 10 Version 1511 Reached Its End of Supplemental Support

As you may already know, Windows 10 Version 1511 has already reached its end of support. However, the operating system continued to receive cumulative updates during its supplemental support time frame. Today, Microsoft finished releasing updates for version 1511.

The official announcement claims the following.

Many customers have reported that supplemental servicing for Windows 10, version 1511 has been just what they needed to adopt Windows as a service and update to newer, supported versions of Windows 10. If you are still in the process of updating to a current version of Windows 10, mark April 10, 2018 on your calendar—that will be the last day for supplemental servicing for Windows 10, version 1511 and the last day for general servicing for Windows 10, version 1607.

Announced earlier this month, additional servicing for both Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10, versions 1607 will be available starting in May 2018 for a duration of 6 months at no cost. As with the supplemental servicing offer for Windows 10, version 1511, this additional no-cost servicing for Windows 10, version 1607:

  • Includes Critical and Important security updates as defined by the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) security update severity rating system.
  • Is a continuance of the Windows 10 Cumulative Updates.
  • Is provided through all normal channels.
  • Is applicable only to devices and virtual machines running Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10.
  • Does not require additional action from customers for eligible devices.

Volume License customers who need more than the additional six months of no-cost servicing beyond April 10, 2018 can alternatively secure 12 months of additional servicing (starting from April 10, 2018) with paid supplemental servicing and should contact their account team for more information.

So, April 10, 2018 is the last day for supplemental servicing for Windows 10, version 1511 and the last day for general servicing for Windows 10, version 1607. It is a good idea to upgrade your operating system in order to stay secured and protected.
