BlackBerry ends monthly security updates for its PRIV

Unique BlackBerry smartphone Priv, who recently turned two years, today suddenly went from the segment relevant to the category obsolete.

If we look at the smartphone, the company has been supporting the smartphone for nearly 24 months, which is a golden standard when it comes to Android smartphone software and hardware support.

The company feels confident about its security features that were baked into the PRIV and are confident that it shouldn't worry existing users. BlackBerry has confirmed that, as the device is more than two-year's old, it'll no longer continue to receive updates. Blackberry, who made the decision to ditch its own OS in favour of Android, has chose to axe support for the Priv, declaring it to complete its two-year life cycle.

Knicks fans may just be happy enough with the haul they got back from the Thunder (14-14) to harbor any ill will. Porzingis has averaged 25.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 blocked shots this season.

"We want to reward your loyalty by committing to providing you with at least two full years of additional support for BB10 and at least two full years of BlackBerry network access for BBOS devices". This program will allow them to upgrade their devices to a BlackBerry KeyOne or Motion by availing users discounts and incentives.

However, BlackBerry has claimed on its blog that they will still continue to provide software support in case a serious security vulnerability is detected for the Priv. BalckBerry also said that all warranty obligations of the device will also be fulfilled. The current BBOS and BB10 users will be missing out on some "ancillary services" including the BlackBerry World app store (12/31/2019), the BlackBerry Travel site (February 2018), and the Playbook video calling service (March 2018).

A little more than a year ago BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO, John Chen, declared that BlackBerry's transition to a software company was complete. The device has been made by TCL.
