WhatsApp have said the following phones will be affected: BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Windows Phone 7 and iPhone 3GS/iOS 6.

Apparently, older models will hinder the development of the app, so they have decided to stop serving them all together.

But don't worry the guys at WhatsApp have issues some sage advice to those affected: "If you use one of these mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of June 2017 to continue using WhatsApp."

Somewhat costly, but thanks for that WhatsApp.

So if you happen to own one of the phones above you better enjoy the next 29 days of mildly irritating group chats with school friends and ex-colleagues while you still can.
