Application will no longer be updated for certain models; check if yours is on the list

From time to time, WhatsApp drops support for some versions of Android and iOS operating systems. The reason is the introduction of features that may not work in older software. This year, the winners are iOS 10, iOS 11.

With the exception of iPhones 5 and 5C, other devices will continue to run the app if they have the updated version of iOS — to get it, visit Settings > General > Software Update. WhatsApp update does not resolve the issue.

A post on the WhatsApp Help Center in English already states that the supported operating systems are iOS 12 and above. In Portuguese, the page has not yet been updated. End date of compatibility is set for October 24th.

In addition to these two Apple models, more than 50 Android devices from different brands will lose support. See below which cell phones will no longer be able to use WhatsApp as of October.
