Confusion about oldest supported version

Solved

As per the official versioning article, each stable version is supported for 12 months. Why is then 2022-01 version still supported today, in March'23, when it is past its 12-month period?

As of today, I'm still able to make API requests using 2022-01 version. I do get back the X-Shopify-API-Version-Warning header in the response, but the calls still work.

 

This seems to be contradicting the versioning article linked above and leading to confusion as we work on migrating our apps to a newer version. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

This is an accepted solution.

Working does not equal supported. If it is outside of the supported window you know some calls you're making may stop working, or stop working in the way in which you intend. 

 

Would you prefer that on the date it just stops working outright?

Thanks, Jason.

 

That makes sense. So I guess only the deprecated features would outright stop working. The version in itself is still there and will continue to be for additional 3 months at least (based on what I'm seeing).
