WhatsApp will stop working on 49 phones

Every year WhatsApp ends support for several phones, and this year is no different. As we approach the end of 2022, WhatsApp will no longer work on a few older iPhone models and some Android phones. While this may sound worrying, most users don’t need to be concerned as the support that’s ending is for phones running on old and outdated operating systems.

As reported by GizChina, WhatsApp is ending support for nearly 49 smartphones across brands including Apple, Samsung, and many others on December 31,2022.

This means that after the stated date, users of those phones will no longer be able to get updates – including new features and security updates – from WhatsApp. Eventually, the service will stop working for them entirely.

It’s important to note that most of the phones on the list are years old and chances are they’re only used by a very small number of people. In fact, some of them are so old that there may not be anyone using them at all.

Regardless, if you’re still using one of these older smartphones, you should switch to a newer model before December 31 in order to continue using WhatsApp.
