WhatsApp is discontinuing support for some outdated smartphones and has begun notifying users. If you’re still using an earlier iPhone, it’s time to upgrade.
WhatsApp is intending to discontinue support for particular iOS versions and has begun telling customers to upgrade to a more supported version of iOS.
This means that WhatsApp will no longer be compatible with iPhones running iOS 10 or iOS 11. Any device running iOS 11 can be updated to iOS 12, after which it will be able to run WhatsApp without issue.
However, because the iPhone 5 and 5C do not support iOS 12, they will be unable to operate WhatsApp after the deadline.
Here is the List of iPhones That will no Longer Support WhatsApp
Any devices losing WhatsApp support will receive notifications reminding users to update to the latest iOS version to continue using the messaging service.
The iPhones that can be upgraded to iOS 12 are as follows:
- iPhone 5S
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 6S
- iPhone 6S Plus
- iPhone SE (1st generation)
If you’re using iOS 10 or iOS 11, you need to update to iOS 12 in order to continue using the chat app. Otherwise.
For Android Users, you must be running OS 4.1 and newer.
