WhatsApp stops working on one of the best-selling iPhone in history
After the latest WhatsApp update, your old iPhone may no longer be compatible with the application.
Although WhatsApp is the most used instant messaging application in the world, if you have an old iPhone, you will probably have to say goodbye to continue using this application.
And it is that the times advance, Apple continues launching new versions of iOS, and the different applications must adapt to it, with what is probable that if you haven’t updated your iPhone for a few years, you can no longer continue using WhatsApp.
Well, you should bear in mind that the latest version of WhatsApp available in the App Store demands right now iOS 10 or higher to continue working, so if you have iOS 9 or earlier, you will not be able to continue using this instant messaging application.
And sometimes the solution is not simply to update to the latest version of iOS, because there are iPhone phones that do not have support, and in this specific case If you have an iPhone 4s or earlier, you have to say goodbye to WhatsApp..
It should be noted that WhatsApp is usually quite benevolent with the technical requirements of mobile devices and covers the old versions of different operating systems such as iOS and Android for many years.
In any case, WhatsApp usually warns with a pop-up window when your specific version has less than 30 days of validity left, so that you have enough time to update the operating system, and if that is not possible, buy a more recent mobile phone.
Right now it is unlikely that there are many users using an iPhone 4s, although in emerging countries it could still have some popularity in the second-hand market.
So those iPhone phones whose latest version of the available operating system is iOS 9 will no longer be able to continue using WhatsApp.
