Windows 10 Mobile April 2018 update coming to compatible handsets according to Microsoft
by Alan Friedman / May 06, 2018, 12:30 PM
Some users of Windows 10 Mobile handsets tried to pull out the April 2018 update manually, and came away with bupkis. As we noted, Microsoft warned that not every model is receiving the update. Still, there is a chance that this is all a mistake; after all, Windows Phone is not exactly a top priority for Microsoft at the moment-if it ever was.
Microsoft will officially walk away from Windows 10 Mobile on January 8th, 2019. Until then, the company will support the platform with bug fixes and security updates, but will not disseminate any new features for the phones.

Alan, where are you getting that Windows 10 Mobile will receive the new build "1803"? The source that you linked to states nothing about Mobile receiving 1803. To my knowledge only PC will be getting the new build and mobile will only be receiving fixes and security updates for version "1709" till the end of its life cycle. I'd also like to ask where you get the Jan 8, 2019 date from? Microsoft's states that they will provide at least security update for a minimum of two years from when a new build is released. Since the fall creators update's(1709) life-cycle started in October last year, that would mean support till at least October of 2019. The support date on the first link I'm providing shows December 2019 for end of life... https://support.microsoft.com/

I could be wrong, but I'd just like clarification if possible

Check the sourcelink. As I said in the story, it could be an error, but it does show up in Microsoft Support. I will look at your links and update the story if necessary. The FAQ you linked to is a month old, btw. Regards, Alan

I received the April update and it was limited to security updates and a slightly crippled Outlook, but it's still on 1709. I have the unlocked Idol 4S from Microsoft btw.
