WhatsApp will stop running on the earliest smartphones which include iPhone, Windows Phone, Nokia, Android and BlackBerry.After some time it was decided that it will be extending its support for BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS, Nokia Symbian and Nokia S40 until the end of June next year.

Yet, by December end many other old smartphones will lose the support of the popular messaging application. But perhaps you do not have to worry as if specifications are taken into consideration then not too many devices will get affected, especially on iOS and Android.

For Android, the support for WhatsApp will end for devices which are running on Android 2.1 and Android 2.2 while for Windows it is devices with Windows 7 as their OS. When it comes to Apple devices, the iPhone 3GS and iPhones which still run on iOS6.

However, devices like BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Symbian S60 and BBOS still have a chance and extra life till June next year. WhatsApp in its previous blog had said that the support for the messaging app will end on many smartphones because they do not ‘offer the kind of capabilities’ needed by it to expand the features of the app.
