Microsoft drops support of Windows Phone

If anyone is still using a Windows Phone, today is the day you may have been dreading. Microsoft is ending support and updates for the Windows Phone 8.1, Engadget reported.

It’s been three years since the device came out in April 2014, but Microsoft is still in the mobile game with Windows 10 Mobile.

The company launched Windows Phone 7 in 2010 as an answer to the iPhone and Android devices, Engadget reported.

Will the end of support mean the phone will not function in the near future? No, the hardware running WP8.1 will just not have any further software updates and the company will not offer tech support for the phones, according to Microsoft.
