Which phones will no longer support WhatsApp starting on November 1?
Some old versions of phones are going to be phased out of WhatsApp updates, potentially leaving users with security risks as security patches end.
What WhatsApp means by "no longer support", is that the app will no longer be updated, meaning new features won't be able to be downloaded. It also leaves the app at greater risk of security breaks as safer features can't be downloaded.

What about the rumors it will not function on some Apple devices?
There has been reports that some iPhones such as the iPhone 6 and 6s would be at threat of being out of support. However, in a recent FAQ, WhatsApp says people should use phones running Android version OS 4.1 or iPhones running iOS 10 and newer.
The changes to operations came as WhatsApp experienced its longest blackout earlier this month, with access blocked for six hours.
