This time it affects above all a few “exotics” under the operating systems, which are certainly no longer widely used, so accordingly less likely to lead to a problem.
- BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 – Support ends December 31, 2017
- Windows Phone 8.0 and older – Support ends December 31, 2017
Also already on the list are:
- Nokia S40 support ends December 31, 2018
- Android 2.3.7 and older – Support ends February 1, 2020
Surprisingly, this does not come with all the love: BlackBerry had even got a grace period of another year. Actually, it should already be the end of January 1, 2017. Users are now advised to look for an alternative, which usually means to buy a new device. The messenger uses the end of the year to clean up something and to purify them in the support area. A year ago, the company withdrew support for Windows Mobile 7, iOS 6 and Android older than version 2.2.
