Details:

As Windows 8.1 reaches end of extended support in January 2023, the majority of Intune customers have already updated their Windows devices so, we will be ending support for devices running Windows 8.1 on October 21, 2022. Additionally, the sideloading key scenario for line-of-business apps will stop being supported since it is only applicable to Windows 8.1 devices.

Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to a supported version of Windows 10 or Windows 11, to avoid a scenario where you need service or support that is no longer available.
