It's time to upgrade your smartphone to a new one again this year. If after all these years you are still rocking an iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy Ace, and you're fanatic of WhatsApp, it's a way to upgrade your smartphone because in November, WhatsApp won't support these or other older devices anymore.
The popular messaging app owned by Facebook announces that it will not operate on iOS and Android smartphones starting on 1 November 2021.
