Windows Phone 8.1 is getting dropped by Microsoft tomorrow
That's right, in case you've missed it, Microsoft is ending mainstream support for Windows Phone 8.1 tomorrow, July 11th. Microsoft has done its best to make users upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile through its Upgrade Advisor app, but more than 70% of Windows Phone users are still on Windows 8.1.
In fact, if users don't pay attention to their Windows Phone news, they might not have even noticed they're eligible for an upgrade through the app. Then again, some phones have yet to qualify for a free upgrade, and there will probably be devices that will not get it at all.
However, if you're still running the outdated version of Microsoft's mobile OS, we strongly suggest you check whether you can upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile. Otherwise, you will receive no performance or security updates for your phone, starting tomorrow.
