(Pocket-Lint) – WhatsApp will discontinue support for iOS 10 and 11 from October 24, 2022, meaning that some iPhones will no longer be able to use the chat app after that date.
This is because iOS 12 and 13 will be needed to continue using WhatsApp. This will stop working on older iPhones that cannot run iOS 12 or 13.
The ones who will suffer the most are iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c users. Fortunately, this does not apply to iPhone 5s, 6s or 6s because they run on iOS 12. Naturally, any modern will be better than any iPhone 7
According to WABetaInfoEarly iOS users received a warning message, requesting an update: “WhatsApp will stop supporting this version of iOS after October 24, 2022. Please go to Settings> General, then get the latest iOS version in the software update. Tap, “he said
This is reflected by sending messages to the official WhatsApp support pages online. Support is only listed for iOS 12 and above.
“Devices and software change frequently, so we regularly review which operating systems we support and update,” it says.
“Every year we, like other technology companies, look at which devices and software are the oldest and still very few people use them to choose who should stop supporting. These devices may not have the latest security updates, or are required to run WhatsApp. There is a lack of effectiveness. “
