The year is almost over, which means WhatsApp’s end-of-support cycle for some Android and iPhone devices is about to begin once more. Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp has shared the list of Android and iPhone devices it will no longer support as of November 1, 2021.
Beginning next month, the devices will no longer be compatible with the WhatsApp app. Typically, these are Android phones that are running Android 4.0.3 or lower, and Apple iPhones that are running iOS 9.
In addition to Samsung, LG, ZTE, Huawei, Sony, and Alcatel, WhatsApp has also released a list of Android smartphones.
iPhone models include the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6S, and the iPhone 6S Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy Trend Lite, Galaxy Trend II, Galaxy SII, Galaxy S3 mini, Galaxy Xcover 2, Galaxy Core, and Galaxy Ace 2 will no longer be supported by November.
