WhatsApp to Stop Working iPhone 5c, Samsung Galaxy Core and More Older Phones: Full List Here

WhatsApp will no longer work on these phones from 2023.

Highlights

  • WhatsApp is ending support for over 40 smartphones.
  • The list contains 20 LG devices.
  • Over five Samsung phones are also part of the list.

WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging platform from Meta will stop working on over 40+ devices from December 31st. The Meta-owned platform often releases end of support list and adds newer devices to the supported list and by this year-end, WhatsApp is eliminating support for over 40 phones including phones from popular brands like Apple and Samsung.

The reason for the company to stop supporting these devices is that the software version on the below-mentioned phones is too old and they won’t be able to keep the app running smoothly as WhatsApp intends. The list contains two Apple iPhones and the rest of them are Android phones – all of which are quite old. Let’s take a look at the complete list of devices that are set to lose WhatsApp support after December 31st.iPhone 5 Featured
