The most popular messaging app is set to deliver new updates and new features to users before the end of the year. Unfortunately, due to some incompatible adjustments, some old cell phone models will not be able to benefit from it.

Don’t worry, it is very easy to find out if your Smartphone will no longer have WhatsApp: you just have to enter the “Settings” of your mobile. Next, scroll down and click on “System Information”. Make sure you have a version of Android greater than 4.1.

If you have done this step and your operating system is found to be lower, you can try updating the app. But, if it is definitely no longer compatible, your mobile will no longer be able to use WhatsApp and you will probably have to buy a new device to have the most recent version of the application.

Transferring data from one mobile phone to another is a process perceived as laborious by many users. But, rest assured, there are ways to simplify it. By picking up a new Android device, you will be able to easily and quickly move much of the content saved on the old one.

Technology has evolved a lot. Currently, it is possible to transfer data from an old Android cell phone to a new one within minutes, even if they are from different manufacturers. This way, you won’t lose your contacts, photos, videos, music or other important files.

What is the procedure for performing the data transfer? You need to download “dr.fone” software on your computer (it is available for Windows and Mac). It is a complete solution for backing up your data. Indeed, it allows you to copy different types of files from one mobile phone to another, such as call logs, SMS, photos, music and much more.

Good to know : it is important to note that the transfer time will mainly depend on the amount of information you want to migrate to the new model. If you plan to transfer a lot of data, in addition to the process which itself takes time, your new Smartphone will also need to have sufficient storage memory to receive all the files.
