On November 1, WhatsApp will be turned off on all outdated smartphones (list of devices)

Since the beginning of November, the problem with access to the messenger will affect more than 40 devices running on both Android and iOS. Thus, users of smartphones with Android version 4.0.4 (and versions released before it) will stop receiving and receiving any messages in WhatsApp. The same result awaits owners of iPhones with iOS 9 installed (and before that), according to the company's website.
Earlier publication DNA has published a list of specific smartphone models of leading brands that will become incompatible with the popular messenger. Check if your gadget is among them - it may have an old version of the OS, if you haven't updated your device for a very long time. If possible, update it to a newer version, so that you definitely do not have problems accessing messenger.
