Microsoft has revealed through consumer-facing web site that it will support current versions of Windows Phone for a period of 18 months. Support, as defined by Microsoft, applies mainly to security updates for each platform variant. According to Microsoft, Windows Phone 8 will receive updates between December 12, 2012 and July 8, 2014, while Windows Phone 7.8 (which arrived after WP8) will receive updates between February 9, 2013 and September 9, 2014. Earlier versions of Windows Phone (7.0, 7.1, 7.5) are no longer being support with security updates. Microsoft cautions that even this level of support for its smartphone platforms will vary by country, manufacturer, device, and carrier.
