WhatsApp will stop working on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c from tomorrow

From time to time, WhatsApp drops support for older smartphones. This year, Meta’s popular WhatsApp messaging app will be incompatible with a variety of iPhone models (including the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c) and Android smartphones.

WhatsApp will stop working on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c…

On its site, here is what WhatsApp noted in a FAQ:

“Devices and software often evolve. We therefore regularly check the operating systems we support and make updates.

To decide which operating systems to discontinue, we identify each year, like other technology companies, the oldest devices and software, and those with the fewest users. to their credit. These devices may also not have the latest security updates or the features required to run WhatsApp. »

As’have noticed the site GizChina, the WhatsApp application will stop working on almost 50 different devices on December 31, 2022 (so today). Application incompatibility with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c is not no surprise, since the society had already stopped its support for iOS 10 and iOS 11 last October. Therefore, users with iPhone 5 and an iPhone 5c could no longer install the latest version of the app.

As a reminder, the iPhone 5 was released in 2012 (it’s 10 years old now) with iOS 6; the smartphone has been updated to 2019 with iOS 10.3.4. As for the iPhone 5c released in 2013 with iOS 7, it has also been updated to 2019 with iOS 10.3.4. The two iPhones in question have the same A6 chip.

… and also on some Android smartphones

In addition to the iPhone models mentioned above, WhatsApp will also stop working on more than 40 Android smartphones after December 31. Which means that users will no longer be able to send WhatsApp messages or make WhatsApp calls from these phones. Here are the smartphones in question:
