  • Phones and tablets (until the end of support is most commonly 5 years nowaday's since Brussel interfered)
  • Laptops (until the end of support is most commonly 5 years nowaday's since Brussel interfered)

  • Desktops (until the end of support is most commonly 5 years nowaday's since Brussel interfered)

 

  • Other equipment (check your provider)

    • Statement: When you know of a vulnerability in your BIOS/Firmware and there is no update within 2 months, you can count on that the support has ended. You can check your suppliers website for this infomration. For phone software you are most likely depending on your mobile provider. This is a different type of support, but whereas Brussels interferes with the main competitors, they should bring consequences to the mobile providers as well, because support really lacks of attention, thus updates.

    • An example is the CPU Vulnerability. For entry level models, the support regularly is 3 years tops making your device vulnerable to attacks and so are your personal files.
