When does support end for a version of Internet Explorer?

The maximum version of Internet Explorer you can have depends on your version of Windows. E.g. Windows 7 users can use Internet Explorer up to version 11, but they cannot upgrade to Edge.

Since early 2016, Microsoft only supports the latest version of IE that is available for a given version of Windows. If you are using an older version of IE than you could, you will no longer receive security patches for your version.

In April 2017, this means the following:

  • Internet Explorer 9 hasn't been supported on any platform since January 2016.
  • Internet Explorer 10 hasn't been supported on any platform since January 2016, except on the unpopular Windows Vista. Vista itself is going to go end-of-life in April 2017.
  • Internet Explorer 11 is the latest IE you can have on Windows 7 (Edge requires Windows 8). Windows 7 is going to be supported until January 14th 2020.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
