These are the mobile phone models that ran out of WhatsApp in November

A week ago, WhatsApp, along with Facebook’s other social networks, suffered the longest decline in their recent history. Unfortunately for some users of the popular messaging app, the problem will not end there, since as of next November 1, the messaging service will stop working on 53 smartphone models that the company will deem obsolete.

Why will WhatsApp stop working on some mobile phones?

The app developers are constantly adding new functions and utilities to WhatsApp to improve your user experience. For example, initially you cannot record voice memos, make video calls, or share your real-time location. All these features have been added over the course of several updates.

However, as the application develops more utilities, it needs more storage space or better requirements to function properly. This is why some mobile phones, either due to the operating system or its components, are no longer compatible with newer versions of WhatsApp.

The application is updated periodically, so the more time passes, more mobile phones are affected.

For this latest update, WhatsApp has announced that it will not work on all devices running Android 4.1, iOS 10, KaiOS 2.5.1 and any earlier of these devices.

What do I do if my cell phone is on the list?

Unfortunately, the only way to prevent WhatsApp from closing your account on your device is to buy a new mobile phone. The good news is that the app has a function enabled to transfer your conversations, along with all your important photos and files, to the new smartphone you’ve decided to buy. The process is usually quite simple if you are going to transfer your data from one Android device to another. All you have to do is back up your Google Drive account and then restore it when you install WhatsApp on another phone.

In the case of Apple, things get complicated if you want to transfer your data from iPhone to Android device. Currently, only Samsung mobile phones with Android 10 or above can do this with a USB cable and Samsung Smart Switch app. So if you have an old Apple device that is about to lose WhatsApp and you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a new one, you may want to switch to the South Korean brand.
