WhatsApp Will Support For Nearly 49 Android And iPhone Models. 1 January

Whatsapp updates won’t be possible on devices still running an operating system older than Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and all iPhones not yet running iOS 12, as some 49 older smartphone models, those in question now were released about a decade ago.

A few older smartphones, including Apple’s iPhones, Samsung and Huawei phones, will no longer be supported starting on Sunday, January 1 as part of Meta’s messaging service application, WhatsApp.

Due to this change, the company will no longer provide updates for these devices, so bugs and other problems may develop over time without a fix.

If the functionality of the app is impacted, users will be notified by Whatsapp.


According to the statement, the company considered which hardware and software were the oldest and had the fewest users when deciding which products to stop supporting.

Launching the Settings app and selecting the “System” or “About” menu will allow you to see the version of Android that is currently installed on your smartphone. Apple smartphone users can check this by opening Settings, choosing “General,” and then tapping “About.” There’s a chance that newer software updates will enable you to keep using WhatsApp.

For users of Android smartphones running Android 4.0.3 or older or Apple iPhones running iOS 9 or older—a total of 43 smartphone models—WhatsApp already stopped working in November of last year.
