WhatsApp, the popular text messaging software, has announced that it would stop supporting older versions of the iPhone OS in October 2022.
According to WABetaInfo, Apple customers have been notified that they must update their iOS by October 24, 2022 if they want to continue using WhatsApp, the popular text messaging software.
According to the source, Apple will discontinue supporting iOS 11 and older, which means the iPhone 5 from 2012 and any of its predecessors would no longer be supported.
If you have an older iPhone, such as an iPhone 6 or 6S with iOS 10 or 11, you should still update your iOS if you want to use WhatsApp.
“We, like other technology companies, look at which devices and software are the oldest and have the fewest number of people still using them,” WhatsApp’s official support page said. “These devices also might not have the latest security updates, or might lack the functionality required to run WhatsApp.”
