There it was announced that these compatible devices are recommended to use WhatsApp: phones with Android OS 4.0.3 and later versions, iOS 10 phones and later versions and some phone models with sistema operativo KaiOS 2.5.1 or later versions, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2 devices.
The news has taken iPhone users by surprise, because, with this announcement, it is confirmed that WhatsApp will stop working on computers with iOS 9 or earlier versions.
Thus, the Apple devices that will no longer have the application are: iPhone 4S, iPad 2 y 3, iPad mini 1 y iPod touch 5G.

The company reported: “For a better experience, we recommend that you use the most updated version of iOS for your iPhone” and that, in that sense, the ideal is to visit Apple’s technical support website for information on how to update the computer software.
That is, the iPhone 4S, for example, can only run iOS up to version 9, so they are no longer compatible. All other phones will need to update to a newer version of iOS, at least iOS 10 (in some it is updated to 9.3.6).
Thus, the iPhone 5, 5c and later may continue to have the application.

In the case of Android devices, you must enter the Settings menu and then the About Phone option. There you can check if the smartphone uses a version higher than Android 4.0.3.
It should be remembered that for those who use the application on an unsupported device, it is recommended to export the chat history before it stops working completely.
Specialized sites point out that abandoning support for iOS 9 will allow WhatsApp advance in the novelties that it prepares for the most modern devices, such as encryption of backups, self-destructing images or multi-device support.
