I noticed that the 64gb version of the Fire 10 out of stock with no word of it coming back in stock. Its also been a long time since a refresh or OS update compared to the Fire 7 or 8. I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of the 10 is being discontinued.

The first HD 10 came out in 2015 (September). The 2nd (the current model) came out in 2017 (October).
The Fire 7 had a 2015 model (September introduction), 2017 model (June) and most recently a 2019 model (again in June).
Until next month expires, a new model of the HD 10 could come out and still not have exceeded the time it took for a Fire 7 refresh. Given that Amazon has a hardware event on September 25, I think the odds are good it will meet that deadline.
The HD 8 has actually gotten a update every year since it debuted in 2015. If it doesn't get another by the end of the year, it will be breaking the pattern.
My crystal ball prediction is that there will be new 8s and 10s soon. The 2018 HD8 has some option combinations simply not available as well. I think Amazon is letting some of the stock get low without rushing to replenish. It could be in preparation for new product.
