Starting 1 November 2021, smartphones models with Android 4.0.4 and older, as well as some old models of Apple iPhones will no longer be able to access WhatsApp.

According to Kwongwah, WhatsApp released an official statement, saying that it will only support mobile phones with Android 4.1 and iOS 10 systems or above. For smartphones with the KaiOS system, only KaiOS 2.5.1 or above will be supported.
