Millions of people deprived of Whatsapp as of January 1

(Agence Ecofin) – Several million older smartphone users will no longer be able to access their Whatsapp chats and content from January 1, 2021.

The app with 2 billion users and one of the most popular in the world will no longer support such older or obsolete devices like iOS9 and Android 4.0.3, reports Dailymail.

In fact, iOS 9 was the last software update that the iPhone 4 could receive, according to the British media. For later models, they will upgrade to more recent versions.

Those who do not use an older Apple device will not be spared from the reform, however, if their device still runs Android 4.0.3.

To find out if they are affected, users will need to check their phone settings.
