WhatsApp will stop working on these iPhones
If you have an iPhone 5 or an iPhone 5C, say goodbye to WhatsApp in just a few months.
It is convenient that we always have our mobile phone operating system updated, not only for security reasons, but also to allow our favorite applications to continue working.
And one of the applications that practically everyone uses is WhatsApp, an instant messaging application that is usually quite benevolent when it comes to demanding certain minimum requirements for both iOS and Android but, obviously, when a certain moment arrives, it must leave behind previous operating systems to look forward.
And according to how they advance from wabetainfoWhatsApp will stop working on those iPhone devices that cannot be updated beyond iOS 10 or iOS 11so if you don’t have an iPhone that at least has iOS 12, WhatsApp will stop working in just a few months.
In this way iOS 10 and iOS 11 will stop working on certain iPhones after October 24, 2022so users still have enough time to change phones or update the iPhone operating system.
The information is also confirmed in the article of the official WhatsApp help center where it is curiously said that the application is only compatible from iOS 12 and higher, although at the moment it continues to work on phones with iOS 10 and iOS 11.
If you have the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s there is no problem, dSince you can update them to iOS 12; however, if you have an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 5C, since these phones can only be updated up to iOS 11, you will not be able to continue using WhatsApp after that date.
This movement is totally necessary, because it will allow us to release new functions that the vast majority can take advantage of.
