It was mentioned by Facebook, the company that owns WhatsApp, that the application would stop supporting some Android and iOS smartphones in early February and this is proven.
As of February 1, older devices running Android and iOS will no longer be able to install the application. Even so, whoever has the application will still have the possibility to use it. However, you will no longer have updates and if you delete it you will not be able to install it again.
WhatsApp will stop working on the following smartphones
- Android: Version 2.3.7 Gingerbread and older
- iPhone: iOS 8 and older
Therefore, if you have WhatsApp installed on a smartphone with this operating system, confirm that you do not delete it in any way. Otherwise, you will no longer be able to use it again.
It should be noted that if you have a terminal at this age, it is also time to consider a new purchase. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money you always have options from manufacturers from China. Here are some options with a list of the 10 best cheap and good phones in 2020.
