Microsoft announced this week that it is extending support for Windows 10 version 1803 for businesses an additional six months to May 11, 2021. Thanks, COVID-19!
“We have heard your feedback and understand your need to focus on business continuity in the midst of the global pandemic,” Microsoft’s Chris Morrissey writes in the announcement post. “As a result, we have decided to delay the scheduled end-of-service date for the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions of Windows 10 version 1803. This means that security updates will continue to be released monthly until May 11, 2021. The final security update for these editions of Windows 10 version 1803 will be released on May 11, 2021 instead of November 10, 2020.”

To be clear, this change does not impact Windows 10 Home or Professional. And after May 11, 2021, any PCs still running the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions of Windows 10 version 1803 will no longer receive security updates, so organizations should plan to update to the latest version of Windows 10 before then. I assume that will be Windows 10 version 20H2 or 21H1 by that point.
