For those who still using Windows Mobile 10, Belfiore said Microsoft will continue to support those customers with regular bug fixes and security updates. But don’t expect anything more than that. The company has now concentrated on improving the link between the phone and the PC. The edge browser is another project that is making its way to Android and iOS with its rival (Android and iOS) hence the failure. If you’re still using a phone powered by Windows Phone 8.1 then you now belong in the same camp as those people persevering with the also-dead Windows XP.
