WhatsApp will soon stop working on some smartphones permanently.


Few weeks ago, the world shook after the App stopped working, hence affecting businesses and communication with family members and friends.

“Popular Android phones will lose access, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Huawei Ascend Mate. For Apple, it’s an iPhone 4 or older. And if you’ve never updated your iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus or iPhone SE (2016), you’ll lose access until you update,” Daily Sun explains.
