WhatsApp Won’t Work On These iPhone Models Starting In October

Published

on

WhatsApp is the most popular chat platform in the world, with over 2 billion users. The app provides rich instant messaging features that are comparable to other similar apps. And, like Apple’s iMessage, WhatsApp supports end-to-end encryption for texts and calls. The best part is that WhatsApp is compatible with both iPhone and Android.

However, as WhatsApp evolves, older devices will lose access to the app in the near future. By October, WhatsApp for iPhone will require iOS 12, which means that some older iPhones will be ineligible.

In early 2014, Facebook (now Meta) paid nearly $20 billion for the chat platform. Since then, the company has been updating WhatsApp, adding new features over time. This increased the platform’s monthly users but did not allow Facebook to profit from it.

Last year, Facebook made a contentious privacy change to WhatsApp, which sparked outrage among users and some governments. Despite the fact that millions of users have switched to competing products, WhatsApp remains the most popular messaging app on iPhone and Android.

And it was only last year that we discovered WhatsApp would no longer support a number of older smartphones. WhatsApp will discontinue support for Android handsets running OS versions older than Android 4.1 and iPhones running software older than iOS 10 on November 1st, 2021.

WhatsApp notification warning iPhone users the app won't support their version of iOS.

WhatsApp on iPhone requires iOS 12

Almost a year later, WhatsApp will make another significant change to its minimum requirements. The chat apps will not support iOS 10 or iOS 11 starting on October 24th.

WaBetaInfo, a prominent WhatsApp leaker, revealed the notification that will appear on devices running iOS versions older than iOS 12. A WhatsApp support document also notes the iOS 12 requirement.

That means the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c models that Apple released in September 2012 will no longer be able to run WhatsApp. But iPhone users on newer models who somehow never updated their devices to iOS 12 or later will also be temporarily affected.

Say you own an iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 that’s still on iOS 10, which was released in September 2016. You won’t be able to use WhatsApp unless you upgrade to the latest iOS update available for those handsets.

If you’re still using an iPhone that’s nearly 10 years old, losing WhatsApp access might not be your biggest problem. The most pressing issue on an iPhone 5 or iPhone 5c is likely the phone’s battery life after so many years of service.

You might be better off upgrading to a brand new iPhone. You’ll be fixing battery life issues and securing WhatsApp access for years to come. Not to mention that any new iPhone you purchase right now will significantly boost the overall performance. Also, it’s easy to move all your WhatsApp chats to the new iPhone once you upgrade.

You have until October 24th to decide how to handle the WhatsApp-mandated iPhone upgrade. The app will continue to send notifications, warning about the risk of losing access come fall. And remember, new iPhones come out in late September, and current iPhone models will get price discounts at the same time.

The Ghana Revenue Authority has begun implementing the second phase of the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-Levy).

Users of mobile money will be required to pay 1.5 percent on deposits, sending, and all other mobile money transactions beginning today, Friday, July 1, 2022.

This is due to the fact that Merchants/Momo Agents will now be charged a 1.5 percent fee on all transactions.

On May 11, 2022, a group calling itself “The Mobile Money Agents Association of Ghana (MMAAG)” paid a visit to the president and pledged support for the E-Levy.

“The association said it considered the payment of taxes as a major tool to drive the needed development and progress of any country and would thus collaborate with the government to boost the uptakes from the E-levy.”
