Microsoft has dropped official support for Windows 10’s original release

 
Microsoft has now dropped official support for Windows 10’s original release, ceasing all security updates for those that do not upgrade to the Anniversary or Creators updates. 
 
This is due to the fact that Windows 10 is built with a “software as a service” model, where regular feature updates are delivered over time, slowly transforming the OS with every iteration. 
 
From now on, older Windows 10 versions will only be serviced for a “60-day grace period” after a major content update is released. Those who are outside of this “grace period” will need to update to the latest version of Windows 10 to receive updates, with the easiest method of updating being the use of the Windows 10 software download web page.
