• Charger The iPhone will finally have USB-C, but not this year

WhatsApp will stop working

on iOS 10 and iOS 11, as well as Apple phones that are unable to update to iOS 12, iPhone 5 5c, starting

October 24


The instant messaging application usually stops supporting some versions of Android and iOS operating systems

considered obsolete


This practice allows WhatsApp to keep updating and introducing new features.

In this case, as the specialized portal WABetainfo anticipates, WhatsApp will no longer be compatible with the version of

the iOS 10 and iOS 11 operating system


In addition, it will also stop working on

iPhone 5 and 5c

, as it cannot be updated to

iOS 12.

The change means that all users with an iPhone 6 onwards will still be able to access WhatsApp, but they will need to update the version of the operating system to iOS 12 to do so.

WhatsApp will stop supporting these phones and versions of iOS as of October 24.

For its part, the Help Center of the 'app' recommends users to use iOS 12 and newer versions if they want to have guaranteed access to the application.
