iPhone users who have not upgraded to a new version of the operating system for a long time – is another reason to do so. If WhatsApp is currently active on your iOS 8 device, you will only be able to use it until February 1, 2020, according to an update on the instant messaging platform.
“On iOS 8, you can no longer create new accounts or reactivate existing accounts,” the update said.
So iPhone users will need iOS 9 or later to run WhatsApp.
“For the best experience, we recommend you to use the latest version of iOS available for your phone,” said WhatsApp.
“We have not explicitly prohibited the use of jailbreak or unlocked devices. While these modifications may affect the functionality of your device, we do not provide support for devices using modified versions of the iPhone’s operating system. Can do, ”he said.
WhatsApp said that users of Android 2.3 and older will no longer be able to create new accounts or revise existing accounts.
