Windows 10, initially released in 2015 has got 3 major feature upgrades till now released in November 2015, August 2016 and the latest one last April 2017. For those who do not know, a feature upgrade is a major update to Windows that brings new features and updates to Windows. Microsoft treats these feature upgrades as a service pack to Windows-which have a definitive life cycle.
The first version of Windows 10 released in 2015, according to Microsoft's policy should have not got updates from March onwards this year, but Microsoft had decided to extend the servicing updates till May 9 as we told here.
Now it is May 9 today, and Microsoft has ended servicing updates for Windows 10 v1507 except for Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB, This means from today, no patches would be shipped to the same. Though 1507 would continue to work but it would be vunerable to Security risks. Microsoft recommends upgrading to newer versions like 1607 or preferably 1703 as soon as possible.
