Apple and Android users with older models will access to WhatsApp messages, photos and videos.

The messaging platform is removing support for a number of old smartphone models, meaning that from November 1 many must do without the popular app which offers free picture sharing across the world.

43 smartphone models – both on Android and iOS – will stop working.

Users will lose the ability to send messages and snaps, or make video calls to family and friends, using the encrypted messaging service.

Smartphone models with Android 4.0.4 or earlier installed will become incompatible with WhatsApp, as well as iPhones with iOS 9 or earlier installed.
