Microsoft stops accepting new apps for Windows 8.x phones and PCs later this year

Since January this year, mainstream support for Windows 8.1 ended. The operating system is now in extended support, which means Microsoft will only patch security issues. Today the software giant also announced it will no longer accept new app submissions in the Microsoft Store for both Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x.

It seems to me that “support” doesn’t mean anything to Microsoft anymore. They proved this when they started denying updates to Windows 7 users.
