WhatsApp will stop working on dozens of devices when the 31st of December.
According to WhatsApp support page, the app runs on Android 4.1 and newer, and iOS 12 and newer.
As reported by 9to5Mac and several other media outlets, the popular messaging app remained on a single date when iOS 10 and 11 were used in October. The iPhone 5 and 5C were updated for the first time in 2019 with iOS 10.3.4.
WhatsApp says its support page doesn’t surprise users of able apps that work. Before we can support your running system, you will be notified directly in WhatsApp and reminded a few times to upgrade.
WhatsApp will also stop working on the LG Optimus, the Galaxy S3, the HTC Desire 500 and the Lenovo A820 by years end.
