WhatsApp has withdrawn its support from iOS 10 and iOS 11

We previously reported that the messaging app would reportedly stop supporting iOS 10 and iOS 11 devices as of Oct. 24, according to one of our legitimate sources.

Earlier, WhatsApp announced on its Help Center website that iOS 12 or a newer version would require iPhone users to continue using the service.

According to some reports, WhatsApp has even already started warning iPhone users using iOS 10 or iOS 11 about the end of support. Those who want to continue using the messaging app in this situation will have to upgrade their iPhones.

Android 4.1 or a newer version is also required for users of Android devices to continue using the instant messaging software.

Both software versions are not widely used on iPhones. According to sources, the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c are the only two iPhone models affected by this change.

Since iOS 10 and iOS 11 are outdated operating systems, and most Apple phones already have the latest upgrade installed, it’s best to update your iPhone if you haven’t already done so. Similarly, Android 4.1 or a later version is required for users of Android devices to continue utilizing the instant messaging software

Meanwhile, Apple is all set for its upcoming launch event to be held on Sept. 7 in Cupertino, where four phones – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – are expected to be announced.

It will also be interesting to see the new A16 chipset that will power only the Pro versions and the new smartwatches.

News Summary:

  • WhatsApp has withdrawn its support from iOS 10 and iOS 11
