Talk instant messaging is talking about WhatsApp, application leader in its category, with more than 1,000 million active users. So it's no wonder that WhatsApp is installed on almost all phones.
But time passes and there are models that are no longer compatible with the features you use this app, and that is why WhatsApp will stop supporting some devices because of their age, they are no longer compatible with new features of the application.
WhatsApp advances unstoppable and some iPhone can not keep up
It's something that as you went along in summer and affects both iPhone and Android. It is a logical step if we consider that this application - owned by Facebook since 2014 - has introduced many new features and changes in recent months.
The most recent example is the arrival of video calls to WhatsApp . But first came other updates, such as that included new font styles to messages , improved security with two - step verification and audio in the background , or the function to add drawings, text and emoji to your photos before Send them
So more and more the older models that can not make WhatsApp work properly. That is why the company will proceed with a gradual abandonment of support for the following phone models Apple: iPhone 4, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5.
It is powered devices with iOS version 6, but also incompatible even upgrade to iOS 7. So the 3G generation iPhone will have to say goodbye to the messaging application most used in the world. In addition to the above reasons, WhatsApp also claims that this riddle of old phones aims to concentrate their efforts to provide better service to other models that do have requirements.
