Microsoft will soon end support for Windows 10 version 1903, also known as 'May 2019 Update' and '19H1'. The OS will stop receiving security updates starting on December 8, 2020.
Windows 10 version 1903 introduced the new light theme, the ability to unpin a group of tiles from the Start menu, the acrylic blur effect for the Start menu, and tons of improvements and fixes, detailed here:
As of December 8, 2020 all SKUs of Windows 10 version 1903 will no longer receive updates. This includes:
- Windows 10 Home
- Windows 10 Pro
- Windows 10 Pro Education
- Windows 10 Pro for Workstations
- Windows 10 Enterprise
- Windows 10 Education
- Windows 10 IoT Enterprise
Microsoft recommends to upgrade version 1903 devices to the current Windows 10 version (which is Windows 10 version 2004) as soon as possible.
Running an older version of Windows 10 may allow hackers to potentially execute harmful code on your devices via newly discovered yet unpatched security holes. So if you're concerned about your security, don't forget to upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10.

Windows 10 version 1903 ends support before versions 1803 and 1809. Interesting.
