I heard a rumor around the water cooler recently that Jeppesen plans to drop support for Microsoft and have continued development of Flight Deck Pro EFB software only available on Apple. Has anyone seen anything that could confirm or refute this?

Only 6 months ago Jeppesen announced a common interface for iOS 9 and Windows 10.

And why would they deliberately lose their airline customers that use Windows? The integrated Class 3 EFB's on Boeing planes for example, run Windows.

The open architecture of the EFB Class 3 system will allow airlines (or third-party suppliers) to develop software for the Microsoft Windows processor using a software development kit provided by Boeing and Jeppesen.

Regarding the FliteDeck, only a couple of weeks ago:

ForeFlight and Jeppesen Announce Strategic Alliance

Jeppesen and ForeFlight will work together on a next-generation release of FliteDeck Pro for both iOS and Windows that will deliver a combination of the familiar capabilities in FliteDeck Pro and significant features and functionality from ForeFlight Mobile.
