Whatsapp Shuns Old Phones


According to Correio da Manhã, from the 1st of January 2021, the WhatsApp app will stop working on some older phone models, such as the iPhone 4 (or older) and mobile phones operating on outdated Android systems, such as version 4.0.3.

The same source, which also cites the ‘Daily Mail,’ states that the messaging platform will stop working on the iOS 9 operating system launched by Apple in 2015. 

Leaving with a warning, Correio da Manhã advise anyone using an outdated system to transfer their files and save important messages.
