WhatsApp sets to cease supporting some phones, IPhone 6+ included

share on:

WhatsApp is an app which works across platforms. In fact, even affordable feature phones support the app.

But every now and then, WhatsApp does fish out a list of old phones for which support is discontinued.

WhatsApp has been adding up new features regularly and some of these features require powerful phones and newer Android and iOS versions to function properly.

Features like picture-in-picture video within chats, fingerprint authentications etc are resource heavy and require powerful phones with enough RAM and newer OS.

WhatsApp has said that some of the phones won’t be able to support the feature that it plans to bring in future and that is why it is ending the support for them.

The super popular messaging app is basically ending support for a number of older operating systems which means that users won’t be able to create new accounts or reverify existing accounts on a number of old phones.

“We’ll no longer actively develop for these operating systems; some features might stop functioning at any time. If you currently use an older operating system, we recommend upgrading to a newer version…,” WhatsApp said on its support page.

Below are the lists of phones that won’t be supported by WhatsApp as from February 1, 2020

  • All window phones
  • All Apple phones powered by IOS version 8 and below
  • All Android phones with Android version 2.3.7 and below

As you can see, all window phones will not be supported by WhatsApp, some IPhone won’t be supported too.
