49 phones will no longer be able to use WhatsApp as of December 31

The instant messaging service WhatsApp discontinues support for a number of phones every year, and this year is no exception. As 2022 draws to a close, WhatsApp is also discontinuing support for a number of iPhone and Android handsets. Although this should be concerning, the majority of users do not need to be concerned because the messaging platform is only discontinuing support for devices with obsolete operating systems.

A brief about 49 phones will no longer be able to use WhatsApp as of December 31

The platform for instant messaging will stop supporting almost 49 handsets from brands like Apple and Samsung, among many others, on December 31, as was first reported by GizChina. This simply means that users of particular phones will no longer be able to get updates from WhatsApp, including new features and security patches, and eventually, the service will cease to function for them after the specified date. It should be emphasized that the majority of the phones on the list are quite ancient, and it’s likely that only a very small number of people use them. Some of them are actually so ancient that nobody may be utilizing the phone. This merely indicates that the majority of smartphone users shouldn’t be concerned about WhatsApp’s support ceasing.
