OMG! Microsoft Store To Stop Accepting Windows 8 And Windows Phone 8 Apps

The tech giant Microsoft has been clear about the need to upgrade its operating systems. As with the arrival of new versions, the company, of course, I am talking about the tech giant Microsoft has been looking for users to upgrade their platforms or, in the case of mobile, to change the operating systems.

To further strengthen this need for change, it will soon close its own application store to older operating systems, starting with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

Basically, in the Microsoft Store, every Windows users can search or look for the applications they are looking for. But, now if we talk about the Windows Phone 8, then let me clear that Microsoft app store for Windows Phone 8 is the only way to get apps, hence, this new change will deeply impact all the Windows Phone 8 users.

But the tech giant Microsoft understands that it is time to evolve, and so has now announced that it will stop distributing new apps dedicated to Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x already on October 31, 2018. This means that from this date Microsoft Store will soon stop accepting new apps with Windows Phone 8.x or earlier or Windows 8/8.1 packages (XAP and APPX).

The final step, in which the tech giant Microsoft will turn off full access to the in-app store news to those systems, will be given later. On July 1, 2019 updates of the apps created for Windows Phone 8.x will be terminated.

It’s no wonder that this permission for the arrival of updates to the mobile version of Windows 8 is terminated at this point since the operating system itself has been unsupported for more than a year.

A few years later, on July 1, 2023, it will be time for Windows 8.x to fail to see app updates coming. Also here is not abnormal the end of the support, since it will be in early 2023 that the end of support extended to Windows 8.x will be terminated.

Any of these dates or information is not strange or surprising. As the tech giant Microsoft has long wanted to end support for these versions and this will be the most logical step for this to happen, prompting users to upgrade Windows 8 or switch platforms in the case of Windows Phone.
