Remind your customers – the free upgrade offer ends 29th July 2016!


It was just about one year ago that Windows 10 was launched with customers given the opportunity to upgrade their current Windows software to Windows 10 free of charge.

To date 300 million customers have upgraded to Windows 10, and now with the upgrade offer coming to an end on 29th July 2016, it’s time to remind your customers of this deadline.

Some customers have been reluctant to make the upgrade to Windows 10. Inform and educate your customers of some of the key benefits:

·       Windows 10 starts up an average of 28% faster* than Windows 7.

·       It’s designed to work with software and hardware your customers already own.

  • Provides enterprise-grade security—not available in Windows 7.
  • It is the most secure Windows ever, from power-on to power-off, protecting user identities, information, and devices on or off network.
  • Automatic updates to keep your customers’ system up to date for the supported lifetime of the device.
  • Security updates, bug fixes, and new features delivered directly to your customers’ business.

    2 questions: The free upgrade offer ends on the 29th or the 30th at 11:59pm.
    If you already have Windows 10 v1507 or v1511, when will v1607 have to be installed by? Surely Microsoft will require users to upgrade to a “major” version at one point. In theory, after 5 years, Microsoft won’t support 10 versions.

    1. Hi Ed

      The time will depend on what timezone you are located in. If you check https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/windowsforbusiness/buy?OCID=ctdn_em_enau_t30_na it has a countdown timer.

      As Microsoft releases different builds of Windows 10, the previous versions will only be supported for a certain amount of time as part of the Current Branch and Current Branch For Business release cycles. For more details check https://technet.microsoft.com/itpro/windows/manage/introduction-to-windows-10-servicing as it covers how different customer and deployment scenarios are handled.
