WhatsApp will stop working on several devices, including Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C

Every smartphone brand comes with its own default messaging feature, but most of them go unused. Different social media platforms fit the bill for messaging no matter what brand you are.

However, the popular WhatsApp messaging app is that social media platform that is used immensely by users around the world. Especially in India, it is the top messaging app used by the users. But there is a worrying news for WhatsApp users as WhatsApp will stop working on more than 50 different devices which also includes iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c.

It’s not very surprising that WhatsApp does this because the platform stops supporting older phones as it progresses. So, as GizChina reported, the app will stop working in a dozen sizes starting December 31, 2022.

In the past, WhatsApp also discontinued its app for iOS 10 and iOS 11 in October. Therefore, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c owners were no longer able to install the latest version of the application.

The other phones include:-

  • HTC Desire 500
  • lenovo a820
  • LG Optimal
  • Samsung Galaxy s3

According to WhatsApp, only a few people are still using the app on these old devices and it is important to remove the feature to make it better for other users. The current iPhone version of WhatsApp available for free on the App Store requires iOS 12 or later.
