WhatsApp will stop working on some mobile phones across the world starting from November 1.
It was gathered that the social media messaging app will stop working on some devices because owners of the platform will cease to provide support for the operating system running on such old model devices.
Some iPhones and Android mobiles would be locked out of WhatsApp forever unless the owners of phones upgrade their device software.
The UK Sun, had in a report last week, gave possible reasons why tech companies withdraw support for older devices.
The report partly reads, “Sometimes it’s because it’s simply not cost-efficient to keep apps working on very old versions of iOS or Android. That’s especially the case if only a small percentage of users are running these old versions of software.”
The British tabloid said that from November 1, 2021, WhatsApp will not be functional on phones with very old versions of iOS or Android.
