In New Delhi: Tomorrow, November 1, 2021, the most recent WhatsApp upgrade will launch, and it has some incredibly bad news for a sizable number of users—possibly millions. Numerous changes will result from the new WhatsApp upgrade, one of which will have an impact on users of old phones with out-of-date operating systems.
WhatsApp support for these phone owners will be suspended, and they will be unable to use their smartphones. As a result, they will have no choice but to get a new smartphone. Despite the fact that their current phone is in fine working order, this will require a large financial commitment. Another alternative for these clients is to update their phones to a higher OS version that meets WhatsApp’s requirements.
While some phones may be possible, the vast majority will be unable to achieve the required high levels, resulting in a WhatsApp ban. This will affect not only Android phone owners, but also iPhone users.
There are two ways to determine whether you are safe. The first question is easily answered by WhatsApp’s announcement on which handsets it will support. WhatsApp claims that “We support and encourage the following devices: Android versions 4.1 and up are supported. KaiOS 2.5.0 and newer, including the JioPhone and JioPhone 2. iPhone running iOS 10 and newer KaiOS 2.5.0 and newer, including the JioPhone and JioPhone 2.” WhatsApp will not work on any phones that do not have these or higher software versions.
The second way is to check through the list of phones that WhatsApp will prohibit, which is provided below.
Smartphones on which WhatsApp will no longer function:
Samsung’s Galaxy Trend Lite, Galaxy Trend II, Galaxy SII, Galaxy S3 small, Galaxy Xcover 2, Galaxy Core, and Galaxy Ace 2.
