WhatsApp will no longer support iOS 10 late October
WhatsApp will no longer support iOS 10 and iOS 11 later this year, according to WABetaInfo. According to the publisher’s notice, the app will now work with iOS 12 and newer versions.
Meta is the company that owns WhatsApp (formerly Facebook). According to statistics, this is the most popular instant messaging application in the world, and publishers frequently update it with new features.
The issue is that many older operating systems (Android and iOS) do not support new functionalities. As a result, newer versions frequently do not support older operating systems.
Furthermore, only a small proportion of people are still using outdated operating systems. As a result, software developers frequently neglect to provide new versions.
WhatsApp has begun notifying iPhone users running iOS 10 and 11 that they must upgrade to iOS 12 or later in order to continue using the service. Otherwise, after October 24th, the app will stop working on their phones.
The iPhone 5 and 5c are currently stuck on iOS 10 and cannot be upgraded to a newer version. To update to the latest WhatsApp version on Android, users must upgrade to version 4.1 or later.
To avoid security threats, Google, Apple, and developers all suggest that customers update to the latest software versions.
