On Microsoft's Windows 10 Home and Pro Lifecycle Policy page, the company stated that it will "continue to support at least one Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel until October 14, 2025."

Underneath, it then lists the retirement date of 'Windows 10 Home and Pro' as 14 October 2025. This means that the tech giant will not release any more updates and security fixes after that date.

However, the company's recent teaser confirmed that it will launch Windows 11 by the end of this month. It has listed a new event on its website, which will take place on June 24.

As per The Verge, at the event, the company will highlight everything that is coming 'next for Windows.'

Microsoft has also been working on a new app store for Windows in recent months, and rumours have suggested Microsoft will open its store up to all apps and rival payment platforms.
