Windows 10 Mobile Insider program quietly comes to an end
For now, updates to Universal Windows apps will still revise the same apps on a Windows 10 Mobile handset. However, there will be a time when Microsoft drops the platform completely, and you might want to get prepared mentally for that eventuality.
Will Microsoft get back into the mobile phone game? With Microsoft applying for patents on a foldable device running a variation of Windows, there has been speculation that this is the mythical Surface Phone that will allow Microsoft to challenge iOS and Android manufacturers. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer finally admitted back in 2016 that his initial reaction toward the Apple iPhone was completely wrong. Ballmer laughed at the iPhone when it was first unveiled by Steve Jobs ten years ago this month, noting that it had no physical keyboard and was expensive. He also talked up the Windows Mobile phones from manufacturers like Motorola that were available at the time.
We all know who got the last laugh.
