Consumers running Windows 8.1: Be sure to get update by June 10 in order to continue to receive security updates

May 12, 2014

While the majority of Windows 8.1 users have received the Windows 8.1 Update through the Automatic Update feature, not everyone has that feature enabled, writes Brandon LeBlanc. Because of that, Microsoft has decided to extend the date a month, to June 10, for people to update their devices to Windows 8.1 Update, so they can continue to receive security updates.

As noted previously, consumer customers who do not update their Windows 8.1 devices to the Windows 8.1 Update by this new deadline will no longer receive updates,” he writes.
