World’s most popular social media messaging app, WhatsApp will soon stop working on some phones. As per WhatsApp, the platform will stop working on several Android and Apple phones. As per the new update, WhatsApp will only be compatible with phones running the Android 4.0.3 operating system or newer and iPhones running on iOS 9 or newer.
So, the app will not be working on iPhone 4 and earlier models, including the iPhone 4s. So people using iOS 9, won’t be able to use WhatsApp. They must upgrade to iOS 10. Models 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6, and 6S will need to update their operating system to iOS 10 to continue using WhatsApp.
