Microsoft ends its free offer of upgradation to Windows 10

No, we can't. It's possible that Microsoft really wants users to upgrade to Windows 10 and is using the loophole as an perpetually extensible back door of sorts to allow upgrades.

Long story short, Microsoft is about to stop offering free Windows 10 upgrades to everyone, including those who use its accessibility features. If you haven't upgraded to Windows 10 already, you should do it today. Yet, for those users who were tapping accessibility tools, the deadline was extended to December 2017.

Microsoft has frequently explored the idea of removing the ability to upgrade for free via the platform due to exploits from the general public to continually upgrade their systems despite not falling into qualification for assistive technologies.

The smartphone also comes with Samsung Pay Mini support to make instant payments using UPI and leading mobile wallets. Moving on, the Galaxy On7 Prime sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with CMOS sensor, f/1.9 aperture, and autofocus.

If you are not sure about the upgrade as Windows 8.1 works fine, you should take into account the fact that Microsoft has cut support for the OS on January 9.

Considering that Microsoft first announced that the assistive technology loophole would expire on December 31, 2017, but was extended to January 16, it's only natural to think that there's a chance the company will push the deadline to a later date. That means users of the OS won't get bug fixes, and they shouldn't expect any new features coming their way anymore. The good news is that Windows 8.1 will benefit from an extended security support until 2023. Yet, since there's no official word from the company that remains pure speculation. As of late, it could be conveniently installed by users running their computers on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the entire procedure is completely free and official, with the only condition of having a licensed and not a pirated version of the old Windows operating system on their PCs.

Well, know this today: You have one last opportunity to upgrade (unless Microsoft once again extends the deadline). But if you want it for free just remember the deadline is today, January 16.
