WhatsApp crashes on multiple smartphones in January 2021

As of January 2021, the instant messaging service belonging to the Facebook group, WhatsApp will no longer work on millions of older smartphones. An already usual procedure, based on the platform’s security reasons.

In effect, WhatsApp will leave out certain older versions of Google’s operating system. The same will happen on the Apple platform with its iOS, where iPhone phones will no longer be able to use the messaging app in specific cases.

WhatsApp cannot be installed on some smartphones

WhatsApp article

If you remove the WhatsApp application, it will not be possible to reinstall it on the devices mentioned here. This is because the platform decided to stop supporting specific versions of the Android operating systems, from Google and iOS, from Apple.

More specifically, on Apple devices, WhatsApp will no longer support iOS 9. So, if you have an iPhone that still uses this old version of the operating system and it can be updated, it’s time to do it.

For specific smartphones, only the Apple iPhone 4 (2010) will no longer be able to use WhatsApp. It’s already a smartphone vintage, but according to some indicators there will still be a significant amount in use.

You can still use the current version of WhatsApp

Regarding the universe Android, WhatsApp will no longer support version 4.0.3 made available by Google in 2012. Anyone who owns an Android smartphone with this version of the operating system will thus be deprived of the messaging platform. Note that previous versions of this operating system are also excluded.

It is worth mentioning that the effects of this decision are already beginning to be felt. However, it is a gradual process, so different operating systems and smartphones will be covered on a different date.

Finally, if you have a mobile device in these conditions and can update it to a newer version of the OS, this is the ideal time to do so. However, as long as the current version of the application is installed on these devices, it should work.
