- Cell phones that will run out of WhatsApp from 2020
Several Android, Apple, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile Computers will be disabled to download and receive application support from next year.
It is common for WhatsApp to decide from time to time to clean up the operating systems of the cell phones by removing support and the possibility of being downloaded on some cell phones. A new cleaning will take place on July 1 when the application disables several types of equipment.
The social network, which belongs to Facebook, will stop providing support since July 1 on mobile phones with the Android operating system gingerbread 2.3.7 or earlier, which was released in 2010, and in the versions before iOS 7, released in 2013. Besides, this equipment will no longer be able to install the application from 2 February 2020. It will also give a definitive shutdown to Windows Phone, Microsoft devices that were unsuccessful in the market and were removed to the domain of Android and IOS. In turn, Blackberry 10 will no longer have support.
The announcement was posted in the FAQ section of WhatsApp’s blog. The impact of these measures may be minimal, given that it will only affect those who have not purchased a new phone or who have not updated the operating system over more than six years. Generally, these updates are done automatically, and it is enough to have a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection to make it.
- 5 Easy Tricks to increase the speed of your smartphone
From removing what you don’t use to rethinking your wallpaper. These simple tips will help you improve the performance of your smartphone.
It happens to all of us: when we open our cell phone, we marvel at the speed with which it works, but as we use it, it starts to decay, and particular operations can get a little tedious. Now think: how many applications do you have that you don’t use? And old files kept? Probably a lot, and that’s affecting the speed of your smartphone.
Here are several straightforward things you can do to improve your phone’s performance and speed.
- Removes applications you don’t use
It seems very basic, but we all have applications that we’ve downloaded for an occasion, and that’s where we leave them. Of course, some apps come pre-installed on your cell phone, and you don’t use them either and that in most cases, you can uninstall. You probably already know which apps you use the least, but if you need help with this, you can check it on your iPhone as well as on phones with the Android operating system.
- Choosing the screen background
Are you experiencing that your phone takes a long time to switch from one app to another? Maybe the problem is in your environment. Opt for a static one, and that will probably help, as animated wallpapers tend to slow things down.
- Free up space
Here come the apps you don’t use that we talked about before, but also all those photos and files that you downloaded, and that’s where they stayed. You probably have a cell phone full of pictures and videos you don’t want to get rid of. But there is a straightforward way to save them without saturating your smartphone: upload them to the cloud through services like Apple’s iCloud or Google Photos, so you can delete them from your cell phone but access them whenever you want through the darkness.
- Install light versions of applications
This is especially important if you are using a phone with limited memory. Facebook, Facebook, Messenger, or Twitter have light versions (Facebook Lite, Messenger Lite, Twitter Lite) of some of the most popular applications. Use them and secure that notes an improvement in the speed of your phone.
- Disconnect mobile services if you don’t use them
Also, something fundamental,l but that we all forget. When we stop using services such as WiFi, Bluetooth, or GPS, we often forget to disconnect them. It should be noted that it is often not possible to disable localization services, as many applications need them. But if you don’t need these services, disconnect them. This has an impact not only on the speed but also on the battery life of your phone.
