What Should You Be Aware About?

When will Microsoft end the support?

Microsoft announced the end of Windows Enterprise OS 6.5.3 on barcode terminals over 5 years ago (around 2017). The support is expected to come to an end by the end of 2022. MS OS based devices are no longer supplied and very soon, they will not be repaired as well. Thus, companies need to plan ahead and seriously consider the migration path to Android. If they fail to plan, they will simply not have any options left as far as bar code scanning devices are concerned by end 2022.

What will happen after it?

Once the support ends, the existing devices can’t be repaired and the new devices.

When Android devices came and how long they will remain?

When MS announced their exit from mobile segment, Google came with open-source Android devices about 5 years ago. Now, Android power billions of mobile devices across the globe.
