Microsoft: Switch to iOS or Android because Windows 10 Mobile is ending
Windows 10 Mobile will receive its last patches and security updates on December 10, 2019 as Microsoft winds down the last remaining bit of development on its smartphone platform.

Certain online services will continue to operate beyond that date; device backups for settings and applications will work for three months, to March 10, 2020, and photo uploads and restoring devices from backups will work for 12 months beyond the end of support.

From the sole perspective of running Microsoft's applications, Android is the better choice; the operating system is more flexible, enabling deeper integration and richer functionality. iOS, however, remains the better choice for long-term operating system support and updates.
