WhatsApp Every year ends its support for some older devices. These include smartphones running on older Android and iOS versions. According to reports, even in 2021 Whatsapp Will not work on iPhones and Android phones running on the old operating system.
Currently, WhatsApp supports smartphones running Android 4.3 or older and iOS 9 or older. According to a report by News18, WhatsApp will now end support for these Android and iOS versions. This means that WhatsApp support will not be available for Android 4.3 or older and iOS 9 or older OS. Currently, WhatsApp has not given any official information about this.
Earlier in February this year, WhatsApp ended support for phones running Android 2.3.7 and older and iOS 8 and older. In early 2021, support is expected to be removed by WhatsApp and older Android and iOS versions.
Let us know that Android 4.3 is quite old. It was launched in 2012. Apple released iOS 9 in 2015. Talking about the latest operating system, Android 11 and iOS 14 are the newest. It is expected that the users running these old Android and iOS versions are very less, but still a large number of people will be affected by it. The reason for this is that WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app worldwide.
WhatsApp has not yet announced whether the company will discontinue support for these Android devices and iPhones. But if you are using a phone running on Android 4.3 or iOS 9, then iPhone users can check the software version by going to Settings> General> About. At the same time, Android users can go to the Settings menu and check the About Phone section.
