Just a few weeks ago, Meta began rolling out a brand new update to its WhatsApp app. With over 2.4 billion users, the messaging app was getting a welcome makeover, with a brand new design. Of course, with each update, WhatsApp also becomes obsolete on some operating systems, with the giant Meta gradually ending support for the application on older smartphones.

More than 30 smartphones about to lose access to WhatsApp

Indeed, last October, WhatsApp was already becoming incompatible with a selection of Android smartphones. “To choose the operating systems to no longer support, we list each year the oldest devices and software, and those with the fewest users” explained Meta at the time.

In 2024, no surprise, a new wave of smartphones will be affected by this incompatibility with WhatsApp. This will not prevent the smartphones in question from continuing to use WhatsApp, but users will then have to make do with a single version of the application, which will no longer benefit from any updates.

As for Samsung, WhatsApp will soon become “incompatible” with Galaxy Ace Plus, Core, Grand, Note 3, Galaxy S, S3, S4 Active/mini and Zoom. Same sentence from Motorola regarding the Moto G and Moto LG Optimus 4X, G, G Pro and L7. Added to this are certain smartphones from Wiko and ZTE.

But the iPhone range is not spared. Thus, later this year, Meta will end support for WhatsApp on the iPhone 5 and 5C, on the iPhone 6S range, as well as on the very first iPhone SE. Apple users have been warned.
