While Microsoft previously called Windows 10 the final version of the operating system, this no longer looks to be the case. The company’s support page states that new updates for both the Home and Pro versions of Windows 10 will cease on October 14 of 2025 – just over ten years since Microsoft introduced the OS. That means Windows XP will continue to hold the record for the longest supported version, with 12 years under its belt.

Instead, Microsoft is swiftly turning its attention to Windows 11, also known as Sun Valley, which we’re likely to hear more about next week on June 24. Add a recent leaked early build of the operating system leand the Windows 10 successor is all but confirmed.

It is expected the update from Windows 10 to 11 will be free, considering how it was originally the last OS, but we’ll have to wait to see what Microsoft has in store on June 24 to be sure.
