Banning “WhatsApp” on millions of phones .. within hours – Saudi News

A few hours separates millions of people around the world from stopping the services of the famous messaging application Whatsapp forever, as search engines during the last period issued a ban on WhatsApp on millions of phones, which raised a state of controversy and the question of the secret of the application abandoning a large number of phones annually and depriving them of service.

The American company stated about banning WhatsApp on millions of phones of the “Apple” and “iPhone” types, that as soon as the clock strikes twelve and one second in the morning of October 1, all devices operating with old versions will stop the service on them, and users will need to change their phones or update their programmes.

Some users will have phones that are too old to update after the WhatsApp ban, forcing them to buy new smartphones, and more than 40 different smartphone models are expected to be affected, according to the British newspaper, The Sun.

For Android users, you will need to be running Android 4.1 or later, and for iPhone, any phone running iOS 9 or earlier will not be able to use the app, according to the official statement.
