## **Samsung ends update support for the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones and more.** According to *Android Authority*, the Galaxy S10 series has reached the end of its life cycle. Recently, Samsung confirmed that it has stopped supporting the S10 series, as well as some other older devices released in 2019. As discovered by 9to5Google, Samsung has adjusted the company’s security update page to remove one old mobile devices. Among these devices are the Galaxy S10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 series. However, the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy S10 Lite have not been included in the discontinuation list because they were released after the first generation. The move comes as Samsung begins implementing a new update strategy. Last year, the company announced it would be adding an extra year to their policy, giving the phones five years of security updates and four years of major operating system updates. But this policy is only extended to Galaxy S21 series and above. The last update that the Galaxy S10 and other discontinued phones should have received was the March 2023 security update. This important update was rolled out recently, after Google’s Project Zero team revealed a critical security flaw in Samsung’s Exynos chip. In addition to this news, it seems that the Galaxy Z Flip will no longer receive monthly updates but switch to quarterly updates.
