Even though on vacation, Dustin Childs dedicated time to provide a closer look at some of the patches for this month in Zero Day Initiative The July 2018 Security Update Review.  Although he indicated "None of the bugs patched this month are listed as publicly known or under active attack at the time of release." his evaluation is definitely appreciated.

Windows 10, version 1607, reached end of service on April 10, 2018. Devices that are running Windows 10 Home or Pro editions will no longer receive monthly security and quality updates that contain protection from the latest security threats.

IMPORTANT Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education editions will receive six months of additional servicing at no cost. Devices on the Long-Term Servicing Channels (LTSC) will continue to receive updates until October 2026 per the Lifecycle Policy page. Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607)-based devices that are running the Intel “Clovertrail” chipset will continue to receive updates until January 2023 per the Microsoft Community blog.
