For some users with devices running on iOS, Android, and other platforms, the next WhatsApp update can be disappointing. The Facebook-owned messenger will stop working on devices with older operating systems, such as Apple iOS 9 and lower. The same applies to Android 4.0.3 and below starting from November 1 this year. Older, more vulnerable devices will become conveniently incompatible with the new app version to ensure the security and confidentiality of users, according to the official WhatsApp website.

Who Should Consider Upgrading

WhatsApp Messenger has become an indispensable app in the lives of many users, so it is worth paying attention to the compatibility of your device with a future update. Which OS versions do you need to keep using the app, and who needs to upgrade the device? The website states that the app will work successfully on the platforms running version 1.4.1 for Android and iOS 10 for iPhones.

There is still some time to upgrade your operating system if you haven’t already done so to avoid problems with logging into WhatsApp. If your device does not support regular updates, you will have to consider buying a new smartphone. To know what you need to work with the app, you can check the official information on the WhatsApp site where compatible devices are listed.

Check Your Device

If you are not sure about your operating system version, go to the settings in the 'General' tab, then choose the 'About' option. You will see the version of your device, and you will be able to compare it with the list given on the WhatsApp site. More than 50 smartphones like iPhone, Samsung, Optimus, Huawei, and more will stop launching the app.

Don't forget to back up your data if you want to change your device. What do you think about this WhatsApp update? How will users with older devices react? You can leave your comment below and share the article with your friends and family.
