WhatsApp: all phones on which the application will stop working


Can you still use WhatsApp on your phone? The answer is simple: it all depends on your device. In the coming months, the application “plans to no longer support iPhone models running iOS 10 and iOS 11”, as indicated by the PhonAndroid site.

Instant messaging has already begun to warn its users by inviting them to install the latest updates available.

It is only to preserve the safety of its users that WhatsApp has decided to stop working on these older operating systems.

Indeed, it is strongly recommended to update these devices and applications whatever they are, as soon as you have the opportunity to protect your digital data.

October 24, 2022 is the date on which some WhatsApp users will no longer have access to their messaging, specifies the specialized site. To access the app, they will need a mobile device with one of the operating systems below:

In fact, some phones will become too old to run the application. This is the case with the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C. Indeed, these two mobiles do not have access to iOS 12.

A year earlier, several Apple-branded devices were affected by a similar situation. WhatsApp had discontinued all iPhones running iOS 9.

If you have one of the phones above, you will therefore have no choice but to invest in a newer cell phone to continue using the application.
