  • Those who own the listed will need to upgrade or get a new phone before May 31, 2023.
Meta confirmed that as of May 31, 2023, the app will stop working on several phones that do not meet the compatibility requirements, as they are somewhat discontinued models.

It noted that the new updates affect both iPhone models and Andriod phones across different makers.

WhatsApp also noted that some smartphone users may need to update to the latest operating system to keep using the app.

WhatsApp also recommended that Apple’s iOS 9 and above, and Android v4.3 and above, to continue to receive support.

On its FAQ page, WhatsApp said:

“Devices and software change often, so we regularly review what operating systems we support and make updates.
“To choose what to stop supporting, every year we, like other technology companies, look at which devices and software are the oldest and have the fewest number of people still using them. These devices also might not have the latest security updates, or might lack the functionality required to run WhatsApp.
WhatsApp identifies each year which devices and software are the most out of date, and those with the fewest users are the ones that are no longer supported. It is also possible that these devices do not have the latest security updates or the functionality required to run WhatsApp.
