Microsoft also said that these devices will no longer be able to locate the device with "find my phone" app/feature. Microsoft's last and latest mobile operating system Windows 10 Mobile is still kicking, but the platform is already in maintenance mode, and the extended support for the operating system will come to an end in mid-2019.
