Das Windows Phone ist nun endgültig „tot“. Microsoft hat den Support für beendet erklärt. Zeit also, verbleibende Telefone im Unternehmen umgehend auszutauschen.
Windows Phone is dead. On July 11, Microsoft ended support for the Windows Phone 8.1, effectively killing off the Windows Phone brand. The Windows 10 Phone is still around, but the company hasn’t gone out of its way to add new features.
Being that the phone is no longer supported, it loses out on key services offered by Microsoft. „There will be no new security updates, non-security updates, free or paid assisted support options or online technical content updates,“ a Microsoft support page said.
While the overall Windows Phone market share dropped below 1% in early 2016, there are still some holdouts. As such, IT admins should take inventory of any user with a Windows Phone device, begin the decommissioning process, and consider some alternatives.
