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.
