WhatsApp users pay attention: WhatsApp will not work on some Android and iPhone from the new year, check if your phone is in this list

Last year, WhatsApp, the world's most popular messaging platform, discontinued its service for certain smartphones. According to a recent report, the company is also shutting down its service for certain iPhones and Android devices this year. WhatsApp will not be turned on in smartphones operating on older operating systems.



According to the report, WhatsApp will not support Apple devices running iOS 9 or older Android phones running Android 4.0.3.


Launched a lot of new features this year

WhatsApp has introduced a number of new features this year, ranging from increasing membership in group videos and video calls to setting a limit on forwarded messages to prevent fake news. Phones running on older operating systems will have to be upgraded by the end of this year to take advantage of these features. Otherwise you will not be able to use this platform in 2021.


WhatsApp will be discontinued in this iPhone from 2021


WhatsApp advises users to upgrade their iPhone to iOS 9 or later operating system and Android phone to Android 4.0.3 or later. Every iPhone model up to iPhone 4 will lose WhatsApp support.


This model includes iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. This means that users will have to immediately update their operating system to iOS 9 or later to continue the WhatsApp service.


This will affect the Android device


WhatsApp will not work on phones running Android 4.0.3 or earlier.


However, there are very few Android devices that work on older software. This will affect very few users.
