WhatsApp Will Soon Stop Working On These 35 Android and iPhones: Here’s The Full List

With billions of users worldwide, WhatsApp is a very popular and helpful messaging program since it keeps adding new features. However, WhatsApp occasionally stops supporting older smartphones that are unable to implement the new features and get security upgrades to protect them. Over 35 Android and iOS devices combined are reportedly going to lose WhatsApp functionality in the upcoming weeks.

WhatsApp Will Soon Cease To Operate On 35 Smartphones: Why

WhatsApp has made sure that the minimal system requirements needed to use the messaging software on smartphones are updated regularly. Additionally, you need an Android phone running version 5.0 or higher due to the latest update.

 In a similar vein, you require an iPhone device that supports iOS 12 or later. It is therefore imperative that you update your smartphone as soon as possible if your device is still limited to supporting software versions lower than these. Otherwise, you risk losing access to the well-known messaging service.
