WhatsApp was updated this week with a change that could affect those users having iOS 9, which means that this app won’t work on iPhone 4s devices

Now, this is the world of innovation, technology is changing every single day. Now the question is why we need the latest technology and latest versions of everything. It is simple to understand that latest security updates can protect the attacks of hackers even better and new features can make work even simpler and easier. WhatsApp is the number 1 messaging app in the world that keeps on updating to bring new features; however, the new version of WhatsApp might impact some users who have pretty old fashion phones having iOS 9 or even below this. Old mobiles have low storage space and have old software installed which cannot run the latest version of apps like WhatsApp. So, if you are a regular user of WhatsApp and your work cannot be done without this app, you better need to change your mobile and get the latest one or at least having iOS above 9.

Starting with the latest version 2.21.50 of WhatsApp, which you can now install through the App store and this requires an iOS 10 or later to be installed in your iPhone. According to a Help Center page which was published on the website of WhatsApp, the latest version of WhatsApp can run on these operating systems:

- Android having OS 4.0.3 or later

- iPhone having iOS 10 or later

- KaiOS 2.5.1 or later, which also includes JioPhone or JioPhone 2.

So, nobody wants to remove the app of WhatsApp from their phone because it is the most used messaging app in the world, people must have to sell their iPhone 4s or below model. This also means that the market for the iPhone 4s will come to an end. The last time when WhatsApp was updated in the month of February 2020, to remove the support of the older version of mobiles, that update dropped the version of iOS 8. However, the iPhone 4s users at that time could update their device to iOS 9, but now that is also not even possible, so they have no other chance but to sell out their mobiles.

WhatsApp is bringing a new archive option, in which when you receive a message from the archive conversation; you cannot un-archive it. However, WABetaInfo said that it is optional and will be available in the upcoming updates. Lastly, if you have important chat in your old version phones, it is advice to export all your chat history before WhatsApp stop working on your phone.
