WhatsApp to stop working on these iPhones from Feb 1, 2020
iPhone users who have not upgraded to a new version of the operating system for long — there is one more reason to do so. If WhatsApp is currently active on your iOS 8 device, you will be able to use it only until February 1, 2020, according to an update from the instant messaging platform.
“On iOS 8, you can no longer create new accounts or reverify existing accounts,” said the update.
So iPhone users will need iOS 9 or later to run WhatsApp.
