Microsoft pushes Windows 8.1 Update deadline for another month

Microsoft is giving consumers another month over its originally stated deadline to install Windows 8.1 Update. Instead of requiring Windows 8.1 users to install the update by May 13, Microsoft is allowing them until June 10, to move to the Update in order to continue to receive patches and fixes from the company.

According to Microsoft "While we believe the majority of people have received the update, we recognize that not all have. Having our customers running their devices with the latest updates is super important to us. And we’re committed to helping ensure their safety. As a result, we’ve decided to extend the requirement for our consumer customers to update their devices to the Windows 8.1 Update in order to receive security updates another 30 days to June 10th. As noted previously, consumer customers who do not update their Windows 8.1 devices to the Windows 8.1 Update by this new deadline will no longer receive updates. We’re confident that within the next month, the majority of the remaining customers who haven’t updated their devices to the Windows 8.1 Update will be able to do so."

Consumers running Windows 8.1 and have Automatic Updates turned on don't need to do anything, they will receive the Update automatically via Windows Update.
