Microsoft ended all support to Windows Phone 8.1 and millions of other devices operated through windows, marking an end to its challenging three-year journey.
According to a report in the Verge on Tuesday, nearly 80 percent of all Windows-powered phones are still running Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8, or Windows Phone 8.1.
“All of these handsets are now officially unsupported, and only 20 percent of all Windows phones are running the latest Windows 10 Mobile OS,” the report noted.
“While Microsoft still supports Windows 10 Mobile, it’s not clear what that support will include in the future. Microsoft is adding a number of features to the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for PCs, but the company has not extended these to the mobile version in testing,” the report said.
