Let us welcome 2019, by telling our readers about the phones that won’t have WhatsApp anymore in 2019. Earlier it was reported that WhatsApp will discontinue its services on certain devices in 2019 and 2020. The app will no more work on the Nokia Series 40 (S40). Also by 1st February 2020, the app will stop working on iOS 7, older version than iOS 7 and on Android 2.3.7.

In an official statement, WhatsApp earlier stated, “WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 8 or later. On iOS 7.1.2, you can no longer create new accounts or reverify existing accounts. If WhatsApp is currently active on your iOS 7.1.2 device, you will be able to use it until February 1, 2020. iOS 6 and older are no longer supported.”

On December 30th WhatsApp in a blogpost said, “When we started WhatsApp in 2009, people’s use of mobile devices looked very different from today. The Apple App Store was only a few months old. About 70 percent of smartphones sold at the time had operating systems offered by BlackBerry and Nokia. Mobile operating systems offered by Google, Apple and Microsoft — which account for 99.5 percent of sales today — were on less than 25 percent of mobile devices sold at the time.”

The phones included in Nokia Series 40 are Nokia 206, 208, Asha 201, Asha 205, Asha 210, Asha 230, Nokia 301, Nokia 515, Asha 502, Asha 503, Asha 500 and Asha 501.
