WhatsApp will no longer work on old iPhones and Androids

WhatsApp will stop working on dozens of mobile phone models as of November 1st. Most of them run older versions of Android, but some iPhones may also run out of the app.

According to the messenger, the platform will no longer be compatible with Android 4.0.4 and iOS 9 on the date. The company’s recommendation is to change the device for one that will run Android 4.1 and later versions or iOS 10 and its following updates.

Some devices with the operating system KaiOS 2.5.1 and later versions also support the messenger. Remember that the transfer of conversation history between different platforms is limited to some devices, but there is the option to export it by email.
