WhatsApp will not work on any Android and iOS models from 2021 … Here are the full details … www.asterclasses.com
By the end of 2020, WhatsApp, the messaging app used by Facebook, is said to be ending support for some older Android and iOS smartphones. www.asterclasses.com
As 2021 approaches, WhatsApp is ending support for Android phones and iPhones running on the Outdated Operating System (i.e. slightly older operating system). www.asterclasses.com
The Facebook-owned messaging app is said to stop working on smartphones running iOS 9 or Android 4.0.3 or earlier. www.asterclasses.com
No one needs to worry as most smartphones do not run on the aforementioned out-dated operating systems. Maybe if you are using a very old mobile, it is better to update your OS, or switch to a newer smartphone. www.asterclasses.com
As for iPhones, all iPhone models up to the iPhone 4 will lose WhatsApp support for the iPhone. This means that users of the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S will need to update their operating system with iOS 9 or later to continue using WhatsApp.www.asterclasses.com
As for Android on the back, WhatsApp will stop working on smartphones running Android version earlier than version 4.0.3. Again at this point, we would like to mention that there are not a large number of smartphones running with Android 4.0.3.
However, if you have some models, such as HTC Desire, LG Optimus Black, Motorola Droid Razr and Samsung Galaxy S2, please update. Apart from this there may be other Android smartphones that will run on the older version of Android, which may lose support for WhatsApp by the end of 2020. www.asterclasses.com
Some users may continue to use WhatsApp on their older smartphones because they may have a pat for specific support with their OS update. For others, however, the only solution would be to buy a new smartphone. www.asterclasses.com
The WhatsApp support page also recommends that users update their specific iOS or Android OS to continue to enjoy all the features of the company. www.asterclasses.com
How to find out which operating system (OS) your mobile phone is running on? www.asterclasses.com
If you are an iPhone user you can go to Settings> General> Information. There you can find information about what software version is on your iPhone. Android users can find out specific information through Settings> About Phone.
At the end of each calendar year it is a regular practice for WhatsApp to end support for older iOS and Android smartphones. Last year, WhatsApp ended support for older models of iOS 8 and above, and support for smartphones running Android 2.3.7 or older.
