Windows 10 Mobile reaches end of life

A small reminder about last week: Windows 10 Mobile version 1709 (the ‘latest version’) received its last security update on 10.12.2019. Microsoft had internally changed the documentation so that the support ends on January 14th, 2020. But after the date has passed, Windows 10 Mobile is finally out of support. Devices with this operating system still work, but they don’t get any more updates.
