About devices WhatsApp supports

WhatsApp works on many iOS devices.
This includes:
  • iPhones with iOS 12 and newer.
  • iPhones that can receive SMS messages or calls.
For the best experience using WhatsApp on iOS:
  • Use the latest iOS version available.
  • Don’t use jailbroken or unlocked devices. We don’t support modified versions of the iPhone operating system.
We stop supporting older devices and operating systems on an ongoing basis.
This is so we can support newer ones and keep up with the latest advances in technology.
We’ll tell you if we stop supporting your device or operating system.
We’ll remind you a few times to upgrade your device to continue using WhatsApp. We’ll also keep this article updated.
