Whatsapp is a highly popular messaging app and has made the news in recent months for encrypting their chats and their Ad policy with Facebook. 

Whatsapp has confirmed that from January 1st 2017 they will be dropping support for iOS 6. 

Thankfully users are being notified on their devices and whatsapp’ website confirms it supports iOS 7 and newer so the only devices that cannot update to iOS 7 will be iPhones older than the iPhone 4.
