WhatsApp supported operating systems

Currently, WhatsApp will provide support for and recommend using the following devices:

  • Android running OS 4.1 and newer
  • iPhone running iOS 12 and newer
  • KaiOS 2.5.0 and newer, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2

Currently, Apple makes iOS 15 available to users, which is compatible with Apple devices from iPhone SE (1st generation onwards), iPhone 6s, and later. In this case, iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s users, for example, can still update their devices to iOS 12 and keep the app working.

Users of the iPhone 5 - released with iOS 6 and updated to iOS 10 - will need to switch smartphones to continue using WhatsApp, as support for updates for the model has ended.

Before ending support for these systems, WhatsApp informs that users will be notified directly in the app ahead of time and reminded a few times to upgrade. 

Still, on the support pages, the platform recommends that users have to download or update "the latest available version" of iOS.
