Every year, applications make important updates to continue to meet the needs of their users, and in this context some smartphones are not compatible with new versions of these applications, and some of them stop working permanently.
For this reason, the “businessman” shares a list of iOS and Android smartphones that the popular instant messaging app WhatsApp will cease to operate on in early 2021.
It should be noted that WhatsApp will continue to work on some Android devices, starting with version 4.0.3 or later, and on iPhones running iOS 9 or later.
WhatsApp support will be permanently discontinued on phones running the Android OS operating system: Samsung Galaxy S2, Motorola Droid Razr, LG Optimus Black, and HTC Desire.
While WhatsApp will permanently discontinue four versions of the iPhone, namely the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c, in addition to the iPhone 5s.
So if you are an Android phone user, you can find your operating system, you can go to “Settings”, then “About Phone,” then to “System Software Information”.
For iPhone phones, if you want to know the operating system your iPhone is using, go to “Settings”, then “General,” then “Software Update” and the current version will be displayed.
