Microsoft officially terminates support for Windows Phone 8.1

After its acquisition of the Nokia brand for its Lumia smartphone, Microsoft has tried to step into the mobile OS battle between Apple and Google with its Windows Phone 8 and 8.1. Unfortunately, its limited app ecosystem and poor availability didn’t give Microsoft a chance to step ahead with Apple iOS and Google Android. For more than a year, Microsoft has finally taken down support and development for the Windows Phone 8.1. It’s officially dead.

While Windows Phone 8.1 consumers makes up 74% of its overall OS user population, not all Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone stand a chance to upgrade to Windows 10. What’s more, only 50% of all Windows 10 user got the new Windows 10 Creator Version for more frequent update.
