WhatsApp will stop working on millions of old smartphones.. Details


WhatsApp will soon stop working on millions of older smartphones, according to a report by the sun by November, as support for many iPhones and Android phones will be removed forever.

Affected users will either need to update their software or buy a new phone, and your device is likely too old to update, so you’ll need to get a new mobile phone anyway.

It is expected that more than 40 different smartphone models will be affected, noting that the company will start implementing this step starting from November 1, after which WhatsApp will stop working.

Supported models:

For Android users, you will need to be running Android 4.1 or later.

And for iPhone users, you must be on iOS 10 or later.

For Android phones, that means a whole lot of popular phones will lose access to it, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Huawei Ascend Mate, and for Apple, you’ll lose access to an iPhone 4 or older.

And if you’ve never updated your iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, or iPhone SE (2016), you’ll lose access until you update, but you can update all three models to iOS 15 – the latest version – and still access WhatsApp.
