The new updates in Whatsapp require many more technical and cellular requirements that can support them, which is why the platform will no longer be available in various models starting tomorrow. In this context, Meta released the list of models that will lose the application. Although the deadline will vary depending on the operating system you have, in some cases this will happen on September 22 and in others from October 24.
On the list are cell phones with Android version 4.0.1 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or lower, and Apple phones with iOS versions 10 or 11. In total, there are 41 affected models -manufactured more than 10 years ago- and they belong to the following brands: Samsung, LG, Lenovo and Huawei.
