THE messaging service WhatsApp is kissing goodbye to millions of smartphones. YES, millions of smartphones, possibly, in developing nations like in Africa. You want to know why? Check your operating systems.
If your Android and iPhone operating systems are outdated, WhatsApp might not work for you from the first of February 2020.
The smartphones that are using Android 2.3.7 and older and iPhone iOS 8 or older are the ones caught by this termination. These are legacy operating systems which cannot be updated or installed on new devices.
For example, to those with iPhone 4-which of course run on iOS 7-tough luck. WhatsApp will no longer run on your device.
Others can simply update their operating systems to continue using WhatsApp.
