In contrast to the phones stated previously, there may be others that lose WhatsApp compatibility. Is there a light on the horizon of the corridor? There may be a possibility for some of these smartphone owners. They should strive to enhance their smartphones to newer versions. If the update goes well, they must be able to continue using WhatsApp on their smartphones. Apple iPhone SE and iPhone 6S will most likely acquire iOS 15 compatibility, so owners should purchase and update to the most recent version, which is already available. However, there is no chance for other phones, such as the ancient iPhone 4s.
