WhatsApp will abandon iOS 10 and 11, the iPhone 5 and 5c

WhatsApp now recommends being on iOS 12 to continue using the messaging app. In one stroke, the Facebook subsidiary will remove two generations of systems from its compatibility grid: iOS 10 and iOS 11. The page English assistance reflects this change, but the Française is still on the old text with iOS 10.

However, it is from October 24 that these two iOS should no longer be supported. This is indicated by an alert spotted par WaBetaInfo. Two types of iPhone will find themselves out of play, the 5 and 5c. These are old models now – they date from 2012 and 2013 – but we still sometimes come across them. A first smartphone entrusted to a pre-teen can belong, for example, to these old families. It will therefore be necessary to switch to a higher model to continue to discuss with this service.
