If you’ve got an older iPhone or Android phone, you may lose access to WhatsApp altogether or some features on the messaging app from January 1, 2021.

The makers of the messaging app have confirmed support for older devices will stop in the new year, and for some it may mean the app stops working altogether. You’ll only be impacted if you don’t have iOS 9 or above on your iPhone or Android 4.0.3 or above on your Android device.


That means those with an iPhone 4 or below won’t be able to upgrade to the latest software, and some much older Android phones will also be affected such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 that was released in 2011.
