If you are currently active on your iOS 8 devices, you will be able to use it only until the February 1, 2020. Not even iOs users only, Android users, who is still active on Android versions 2.3.7 and older will no longer be able to create new accounts, nor reverify existing accounts.
So iPhone users will need iOS 9 or later to run WhatsApp.
“For the best experience, we recommend you use the latest version of iOS available for your phone,” WhatsApp said. “We don’t explicitly restrict the use of jailbroken or unlocked devices. However, because these modifications might affect the functionality of your device, we can’t provide support for devices using modified versions of the iPhone’s operating system,” it added.
