Enterprise and Education Windows 10 Version 21H2 Support Ending June 11

Microsoft has announced that support for Enterprise and Education versions of Windows 10 version 21H2 will end on June 11, 2024.

That means that any updates, including security fixes, will not be available for  the following list of commercial versions of Windows 10 version 21H2:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise, version 21H2
  • Windows 10 Enterprise multi-session, version 21H2
  • Windows 10 Education, version 21H2
  • Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, version 21H2

This comes one year after the consumer versions of Windows 10 version 21H2 lost support.

Microsoft recommends users of the expiring OS should upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 or transition to Windows 11. The only supported version of its previous OS is now Windows 10 version 22H2, with an end-of-support date of Oct. 14, 2025.

Another option is Microsoft's Extended Security Updates subscription, announced by the company in December 2023. For a cost, Microsoft will extend critical security updates for select products and services that have reached the end of life. This may be a more viable option for organizations unable to transition to Windows 11 because of the OS’s TPM 2.0 hardware requirements. For more information, check out the Microsoft article here.
