The Support for Magento 1 Ends in 2020
2015 had witnessed the launch of Magento 2.0 – which was a much-anticipated overhaul of Magento 1 platform. It changed the selling experience of e-retailers in its entirety. But during this roll out, Magento had also announced that it will discontinue the support for Magento 1 eventually.
If you have not migrated to Magento 2, you must know that Magento 1.x Support End Date is nearing. Take a look at the policy Magento released for Magento 1 Support. It also applies to the Magento 2 version of Enterprise, also known as Magento Commerce.
The policy states that Magento will keep releasing security patches for versions 1.9 – 1.12 only until Magento 1.x support end date – June 2020. Magento has already extended the support past their official policy which originally promises 2 years of support. The extended support is for the retailers who might have recently launched their sites on 1.13 and 1.14. So, if you still run your e-store on Magento 1, the time is running out!
