Microsoft Fully Retires Windows 10 Version 1703

The October 2019 Patch Tuesday was the final update cycle for Windows 10 version 1703, or Creators Update.


As of today, no Windows 10 version 1703 SKU is supported, with only devices enrolled in the LTSC to continue being serviced continuing to move forward.


Windows 10 Creators Update was released on April 5, 2017, while the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions received the go-ahead for production devices on April 7, 2017.


Microsoft stopped providing updates and security patches for computers running Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstations editions of Windows 10 version 1703 on October 9, 2018, while Enterprise and Education editions reached the end of service on October 8, 2019.


Quite simply, if your system is still on Windows 10 version 1703 and is not subscribed to LTSC, you're strongly recommended to update as soon as soon as possible to some newer release of Windows 10, as Microsoft would no more release any security patches and other fixes.


Windows 10 19H2 just around the corner


It's understandable the recommended option for all users seeking to upgrade may be the latest stable build, which right now is Windows 10 version 1903, or May 2019 Update.


Launched in May this season, Windows 10 version 1903 is projected to reach the end of service for Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstations editions on December 8, 2020, the same day when Microsoft will close the lid on on the Enterprise and Education editions. The latest fall update, however, that is Windows 10 version 1809, will be serviced until May 11, 2021, according to Microsoft's policy for fall updates.


Meanwhile, the software giant can also be giving the finishing touches to another Windows 10 feature update currently known as version 1909 or 19H2. This update was presumably finalized in September, which is now expected to hit production devices within the coming weeks.
