These phones will soon no longer have access to WhatsApp – 3 Samsung, 3 Huawei and 3 iPhone in the list

After several years of service, WhatsApp will stop working on certain smartphone models: iPhone, Samsung, Huawei, and many others. The full list has been released.

WhatsApp has become one of the most popular instant messaging applications across the world. It is therefore the main means of communication for millions of people. The announcement that the application will no longer work on certain smartphones is therefore a real concern.

It has indeed been announced that, from Friday, September 1 this year, all smartphones running Android 4.0.1 or iOS 12, or earlier versions, will no longer be compatible with WhatsApp.

Over time, the operating system or application updates are no longer compatible with some smartphones. This is why these phones encounter usability problems or the application simply no longer opens. Therefore, WhatsApp will no longer be available on all of the devices below from September 1, 2023.

If you are wondering why the app will no longer work on your smartphone, the answer is simple. In many cases, the operating system becomes “obsolete” in the face of updates. The storage capacity is full, the Internet speed is not sufficient, or the hardware is reaching its operating limit.

This will affect the following smartphone models, for which WhatsApp will gradually stop working, although problems will begin as early as September 2023:
