WhatsApp has finally decided to end support for a few more iOS devices shortly. Beginning later this year, the firm will no longer be compatible with iPhones running iOS 10 and iOS 11 operating systems. Here is the information that you require.

According to WABetaInfo, the company is reportedly notifying iPhone customers who are currently running iOS 10 or iOS 11 that they will need to update their iPhones to continue using WhatsApp after October 24.

To keep using WhatsApp, make sure that you have the most recent version of iOS.

After October 24th, 2022, WhatsApp will no longer provide support for this version of iOS. To obtain the most recent version of iOS, go navigate to Settings > General and then tap Software Update.

If you’re concerned about which modern smartphones are compatible with iOS 10 and iOS 11, the following are the options:

  • Apple’s iPhone 5
  • Apple’s iPhone 5c

Because to this, users who possess these iPhones will no longer be able to access the WhatsApp service beginning in October. For the time being, owners of an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, or iPhone 6s running iOS 12 do not need to be concerned because the business will continue to support these devices.

It is already stated by the firm in the WhatsApp Help Center that iPhone users need to be running iOS 12 or a later version in order to continue using the service. Users of Android, for instance, require an operating system version of 4.1 or later.

While WhatsApp will eventually stop providing support for these phones, the World Wide Developers Conference 2022 (WWDC 2022), which is where Apple is expected to release iOS 16, is only a few weeks away. According to urban legends, Apple will soon make this operating system incompatible with the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and the first-generation iPhone SE.

Naturally, 9to5Mac will notify its readers when WhatsApp stops providing support for other devices, and we will also inform them which iPhone models will be able to run the most recent version of iOS.

Do you know anyone who still has an iPhone 5 or 5c and utilizes the messaging service WhatsApp? Pass on to them the latest information.
