As mentioned in previous posts, 11/11/2021 and on 11/15/2022, Office 2013 reached the end of the Extended Support lifecycle on April 11, 2023. Continuing to use Office 2013 could increase your organization’s exposure to security risks, impact your ability to meet compliance obligations, and/or affect end user productivity.
Additionally, support for other Microsoft Office products is also coming to an end in the next months. Please review the following list and act before the end of the product’s lifecycle:
- Office 2019 for Mac reaches end of support on October 10, 2023. This means Office 2019 for Mac will no longer receive security updates, bug fixes, technical support, or online technical content support.
- Connecting Office 2016 and Office 2019 to Microsoft 365 reaches end of support on October 10, 2023. After this end date we won’t block these Office versions from connecting to Microsoft 365 services if they are kept up to date. But after October 10, 2023, improvements to Microsoft 365 services will no longer be tested with these Office versions, so, users could experience performance or reliability issues. Read more about this in our Microsoft Learn article.
If you're running a version affected by any of the end of support dates, we recommend upgrading to Microsoft 365 E3, which comes with Microsoft 365 Apps – the apps you're familiar with (e.g., Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.). It falls under the Modern Lifecycle Policy, so it’s continuously supported.
Here are some resources to help plan the move:
