  • Windows 10 Version 1511: This version of Windows 10, released in November 2015, was discontinued on October 10, 2017. However, Enterprise and Education editions for version 1511 still received security updates 6 months after this date (March 2018 was over).
  • Windows 10 Version 1607: This version of Windows 10 (Anniversary Update), released in summer 2016, is no longer supported on April 10, 2018. However, Enterprise and Education editions for version 1607 will still receive security updates 6 months after this date.

    However, there is one more peculiarity. Systems with Clovertrail CPU will receive updates until 2023 (see Windows 10 V1607: Updates for Clover Trail systems until 2023). And LTSC versions are supported until 2026.

Windows 10 Version 1703, 1709 and 1803 are still supported. The Home and Pro versions will also receive updates there. An overview of support intervals can be found on this Microsoft page.
