WhatsApp will stop working on some older smartphones from January 1

Should you’ve acquired an older iPhone or Android cellphone, you might lose entry to WhatsApp altogether or some options on the messaging app from January 1, 2021.

The makers of the messaging app have confirmed help for older units will cease within the new 12 months, and for some it might imply the app stops working altogether. You may solely be impacted if you do not have iOS 9 or above in your iPhone or Android 4.0.3 or above in your Android machine.
