According to a tweet posted by WABetainfo, WhatsApp will also no longer support devices running on iOS 8. However, users can still use WhatsApp on iOS 8 but won’t be able to verify their accounts if they reinstall it.

The instant messaging platform has also suggested that for the best experience, users should upgrade to the latest version of iOS available for their devices.
