However, Now iOS 10 Is Required Which Means Users Will Need An iPhone 5 Or Later Model To Use WhatsApp. 

The Change Will Affect Users Of The iPhone 4s For The Most Part, But This Is Still Only A Tiny Percentage Of iPhone Users. 

“In December. Apple Confirmed That 81 Percent Of iPhone Users Are Running iOS 14, With A Further 17 Percent On iOS 13 Or Earlier, Which Means That Only 2 Percent Of iPhone Users Are Running A Version Of iOS 12 Or Earlier,” Reports iMore.  

Last Year, The Facebook-owned Messaging Service Dropped Support For iOS 8 And Older Versions Of The Operating System. 

Whatsapp Is Working On A New Password Protection Feature That Will Encrypt Chat Backups In Cloud, Making Them Accessible Only To The Users.
