According to their web site:

"Our main provider of satellite imagery is Bing, Microsoft's mapping service. You can go to to see these satellite images unencumbered by OSM data. Note that Bing satellite imagery (the one used in the potlach editor) isn't on the main website for legal reasons, not technical ones. OSM received an exceptional authorization from Microsoft to use the imagery for editing only, not for viewing/redistribution."

The Bing imagery I looked at seemed to date from approximately early to mid 2017. Not the most up-to-date we have seen, but nice clarity of detail.
