The Windows Insider program has been something of a success for Microsoft, both on the desktop and on mobile. With Windows 10 on desktop now available to the general public however, that particular program has slowly been wound down.
Now the same thing is set to happen to the mobile part of Windows Insider, with the official end date given as October 1st 2015 on a Windows help page. That it is coming to an end is, in itself, not especially remarkable, what it signifies is altogether more important
Microsoft has provided an official end date given as October 1st 2015 on a Windows help page (via WMPU). That it is coming to an end is, in itself, not especially remarkable, what it signifies is altogether more important:
As development on Windows 10 for desktop has slowly reached completion, so Redmond has been shifting engineers to the mobile element of its software project. Rumors have abounded regarding a special event in October, where the likes of new Lumia devices and even a Surface Pro 4 are expected to be seen. With the end of the Insider Preview expected around this time, an official release of Windows 10 Mobile around this point only seems more likely, especially towards the end of September, or perhaps even by the September 15th date mentioned on the help page.
Stay tuned to WinBeta to learn more as this develops further.
