By the end of the year 2020, support for millions of Android & iOS smartphones is being phased out by Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp.
Yes, very soon some Android & iPhone smartphones will not be able to use the world’s most popular messaging application (Whatsapp) because their operating systems will lose the versions required for the application.
According to a report, the world’s most popular messaging application (WhatsApp) support will be removed on iPhones working on earlier versions of iOS 9.
This means that it will no longer be possible to use the world’s most popular messaging application (WhatsApp) on iPhone 4 and earlier models.
Similarly, in order to use WhatsApp in iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6 & 6S, the OS (Operating System) needs to be updated with iOS 9 or later.
As far as Android smartphones are concerned, WhatsApp will no longer work on phones before Android Version 4.0.3.
Android Version 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich was first released in 2011, so if your phone is 8 to 10 years old then you should be worried otherwise you will not face WhatsApp application shutdown.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the article. The number of users using phones based on Apple’s older OS (operating systems) is estimated at 10 million.
Note that before this, on December 31, 2019, WhatsApp had stopped supporting all smartphones running Windows OS (operating system).
