In a few months, WhatsApp messenger will stop working on some older iPhones running iOS 10 and iOS 11. This was reported by WABetaInfo source, which has been established as a reliable source of leaks on the popular messenger.

According to the published screenshot, support for iOS 10 and iOS 11 devices will be discontinued on October 24 this year. This hypothesis is confirmed by the fact that in the Frequently Asked Questions section of the WhatsApp website, you need at least the version of the operating system iOS 12.

For models like iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C, iOS 12 is not available for installation. therefore they will no longer receive WhatsApp updates in the fall of 2022. However, it is unlikely that so many people will continue to use the iPhone 5, which was released in 2012.

As noted by WABetaInfo, the removal of support for older versions of iOS is necessary to implement support for new features that have appeared in WhatsApp. Updating to the latest version of iOS also gives the user access to the latest operating system security fixes, so it is always a good idea to update iOS as a newer version is available.

WhatsApp will stop working on older iPhones later this year


According to information that has not yet received official confirmation. the WhatsApp Messenger team is working on a feature. which will allow team members to see the list of those who left these groups in the future. Likely, another feature will also be available – leave groups silently without posting notifications in the chat.

According to the WABetaInfo portal, which we know for accurate information about news, including trial versions of WhatsApp messenger. The feature is available in version v2.22.12.4 for Android, available to participants in the Google Play Beta test program. but so far ordinary testers can not use it.

This version of WhatsApp, which is still under construction, reportedly has a feature that is not yet available. the option “View previous participants”, which appears at the end of the general list of team members. At the same time, experts say that those who have the right level of access can see former users. not only managers have such an opportunity. However, everything can be changed before the feature becomes available to beta testers or anyone else.

In addition, there will be a new opportunity for those who wish to leave one of the teams. but for some reason I do not want to advertise it. The beta version of WhatsApp Desktop recently introduced a similar feature (also not yet available in beta testers). The only people who will know about leaving the team will be the user and the administrators. So far, a general chat alert is displayed each time someone leaves the group.
