PSA: Microsoft reminds all that Windows 10 20H2 servicing ends soon in May 2022

Microsoft informed users earlier today that Windows 10, version 20H2 - also called the October 2020 update - is reaching the end of servicing in May this year, on May 10 to be precise. Microsoft publicly released this feature update in September of 2020 with a ton of changes.

This affects all Windows 10 20H2 versions like Home, Pro, Pro Education, and Pro for Workstations. Microsoft has encouraged those still running Windows 10 20H2 version to update to the next feature update.

The full announcement reads:

Windows 10, version 20H2 will reach the end of servicing on May 10, 2022. This applies to the following editions* of Windows 10 released in October of 2020:

  • Windows 10 Home, version 20H2
  • Windows 10 Pro, version 20H2
  • Windows 10 Pro Education, version 20H2
  • Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, version 20H2

These editions will no longer receive security updates after May 10, 2022. Customers who contact Microsoft Support after this date will be directed to update their device to the latest version of Windows 10 to remain supported.

Microsoft also recently stated that it was force updating eligible 20H2 devices to Windows 10 21H2 in order to train its own ML update model. So chances are that your PC is probably already updated.

However, if it's still not updated despite being eligible, Microsoft explained how insufficient internet connectivity time could be to blame.
