WhatsApp Will Not Work on These iPhones from Today
TECH DIGEST- Previously, WhatsApp had announced that it would stop supporting the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. Users of both types already received an in-app message in May, warning users of this new change. The notification informs users who are still using an Apple handset, giving them many times to upgrade to a handset that is still capable of running WhatsApp.

From Today, Monday, October 24, 2022, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C will no longer be able to run WhatsApp because the world’s most popular chat app, no ??longer supports iOS 10 and iOS 11. “WhatsApp will stop supporting this iOS version after 24 Oct 2022. Go to Settings > General, then tap Software Update to get the latest iOS version,” reads a WhatsApp warning quoted from the Express website. Other devices that are also affected by this change include the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6S. But this trio of handsets still gets an upgrade from iOS 10 or iOS 11 to iOS 12.
WhatsApp minimum specifications are changing as newer iOS versions are required for new features. Several Apple fans who still use this old handset is likely already very small.
