Microsoft has decided to stop Windows 10 free upgrade for users with assistive technologies. As per the revised schedule, the Windows 10 free upgrade offer will expire on January 16, 2018. Whenever a new operating system is launched, the Redmond-based tech giant used to provide free upgrades for one year. The company also extended the same to Windows 10.
Even though the normal upgrade offer ended in July 2016, the company continued to provide upgrades for users who would like to leverage the benefits of assistive technologies. It is to be noted that this offer also ended on December 31, 2017, but Microsoft again extended it to few more weeks. The latest news is that the Windows manufacturer has taken the final plunge and will stop offering any Windows 10 upgrades after January 16.
If you work with assistive technologies, you can easily upgrade to Windows 10 free of cost. The aim of the company is to enhance the user experience of people and also to reduce the learning curve. The Windows 10 upgrade in mainly oriented for users who work with assistive technology. However, you need not have to undergo any verification process as to whether you are really using any assistive technology.
Even if you are not using assistive tech, you can upgrade through the process. This is a major loophole since all users got the benefit of the upgrade. Microsoft now wants to put a full stop by not offering any Windows 10 free upgrade after January 16.
That being said, if you would like to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8, you can do so now even if you are not using assistive technologies. After January 16, 2018, you will have to pay $119 to upgrade to Windows 10.
Microsoft Windows 10 simplifies the lifestyle of users to a large extent with a smooth and fluid user interface and other related features. Moreover, the operating system works smoothly with the latest processors. If you are working with outdated Windows 7 and Windows 8, you should upgrade to Windows 10 for security.
