WhatsApp will no longer work on these phones from June 1

will end support for its app on more than 30 phones, including three popular models. Here's the full list.

WhatsApp, the popular messaging app owned by Facebook, often stops supporting older phones or those that, for one reason or another, are no longer updated with the latest versions of operating systems. From June 1, the platform will stop working on more than 30 phones for these reasons, some of which are as distinctive and popular as the first-generation iPhone 6s or iPhone SE.

The list of mobiles on which WhatsApp will stop working from June 1 is full of older models, so it's likely that there will be virtually no users of these models. In concrete terms, 21 smartphones running an Android operating system will soon be unable to use WhatsApp normally. Here's the list, starting with Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

  • Samsung Galaxy Core
  • Samsung Galaxy Trend Lite

These iPhones will no longer be able to access WhatsApp from June 1

From June 1, the following iPhone models will no longer be able to access WhatsApp. At least, not as safely and securely as other, more recent iPhones.

  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE first generation

These models, which will stop using WhatsApp, remember, only support iOS 15 and only receive updates containing patches. They are also models that have been on the market for many years. The iPhone 6s and 6S Plus were announced in 2015, while the first-generation iPhone SE hit stores in March 2016.

Users who still own some of these 36 phones will no longer be able to reinstall the WhatsApp app from the App Store or Play Store. The app will also display a frequent warning that WhatsApp is no longer compatible with this version or device.
