Microsoft has been evaluating the public health situation and its impact on our customers. To ease one of the many burdens our customers are facing, Microsoft will delay the scheduled end of service date for the Enterprise, Education, and IoT Enterprise editions of Windows 10, version 1709. This means devices will receive monthly security updates only from May to October. The final security update for these editions of Windows 10, version 1709 will be released on October 13, 2020 instead of April 14, 2020. See the Microsoft Tech Community Blog.  

Security updates for Windows 10, version 1709 will be available via regular servicing channels: Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services, and the Microsoft Update Catalog. Customers will not need to alter current update management workflows. For example, all supported versions of Microsoft Configuration Manager (current branch) will continue to support Windows 10, version 1709 until October 13, 2020.

If they have not already, IT teams are encouraged to shift to Windows Update for Business, allowing users to take both feature updates and quality updates directly from Microsoft in a secure and often faster manner. See Windows as a Service (WaaS) to learn how to keep Windows 10 devices up to date.
