Microsoft is taking steps to encourage users to upgrade their PCs to the latest version of Windows 10 and avoid being stable to outdated versions of Windows 10. Microsoft is going to terminate the upgrade service for Windows 10 version 1507 on March 26, 2017. The users, who are still sticky to Windows 10 version 1507, should consider upgrading their system to the latest version i.e. 1607.
If you keenly desire to keep your system secure you need to upgrade your system to Windows 10, version 1607 which is also known as the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Without upgrading, you will not be able to access some of the areas of Windows system such as Windows Store. As per Microsoft, from today, the grace period has been started for the users with version 1507 and this period will end on March 26, 2017. This grade period is provided to upgrade outdated version to the latest one.
Microsoft Statement in the blog post (Windows for IT Pros)
“With the availability of Windows 10, version 1607 to the VLSC on January 26th, the 60-day grace period for Windows 10, version 1507 will begin. That means, after March 26th, 2017, Windows 10, version 1507 will no longer be serviced as only the two most Current Branch for Business (CBB) versions are actively serviced.”
Windows 10 is a secure Operating System and the Anniversary Update was developed to get rid of some security issues. The legacy Windows were not as much secured as should be because the legacy Windows users used to ignore or postpone important & major updates. This is the main reason that leads to compromise their system security in the hands of attackers. To overcome this problem, Microsoft launched Windows 10 with auto updates feature. The auto updates technique is definitely fruitful for security conscious users.
