WhatsApp will no longer be compatible with iPhones that follow iOS 7 — 2022
Applications in their development process drop devices and operating systems on their way, leaving them without compatibility. Every year from WhatsApp they are renewing the list of mobiles in which their messaging application will stop working snapshot in the future. This is important for people who use this service on a regular basis, as they may be surprised to see their iPhone unable to connect to WhatsApp.
WhatsApp will stop working on some iPhones in 2020
Yesterday WhatsApp updated the list of devices that will no longer be compatible in the coming years and in this list we see Apple devices that although they are very old , someone may still use it.
In 2016, the messaging service stopped working in the iPhone 3GS , Y in general on all devices that were on iOS 6 , so we were forced to upgrade or upgrade our operating system whenever possible.
With the latest update on June 13, WhatsApp incorporated in its blacklist the iPhones that have iOS 7 or older installed, they will no longer be able to use this application as of February 1, 2020. Along with the iPhones that are in iOS 7, the following devices have joined, as shown ADSLZone :
- Nokia Symbian S60, after June 30, 2017
- BlackBerry Operating System and BlackBerry 10, after December 31, 2017.
- Windows Phone 8.0 and earlier, after December 31, 2017
- Nokia S40, after December 31, 2018
- Android OS version 2.3.7 and earlier, after February 1, 2020
If you are one of the few people who has an iPhone on iOS 7, We recommend updating as soon as possible or getting a new device if you don't want to be left without being able to send messages through this messaging service in 2020. I know that many of you will say that no one will have a computer with such an old operating system, but you would be surprised to see how many people resist with an iPhone 3GS or a Iphone 4.
Leave us in the comment box if you have a device on the blacklist, do you see this restriction as positive?
