From November 1, (today), WhatsApp will be blocked on millions of phones across the world, meaning that you could lose access to messages, photos and contacts.

The popular messaging app, which is owned by Facebook, is pulling support for some major smartphones.

The app will be blocked on phones that are not updated to a certain level as they will no longer be able to support the software.

43 Android and iOS models will lose the ability to send messages and pictures or make video calls on WhatsApp from Monday

That includes any phone with Android 4.0.4 or earlier installed or any iPhone with the iOS 9 software or earlier.

Google did just that with old Android phones for Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps.

In a report, the British tabloid gave possible reasons why tech companies withdraw support for older devices.

“Sometimes it’s because it’s simply not cost-efficient to keep apps working on very old versions of iOS or Android.”

“That’s especially the case if only a small percentage of users are running these old versions of software,” the report read.

Below are the devices that are expected to be affected from November 1, 2021.
