- Users need to update their operating system to the latest version for continued services.
The popular messaging service will drop support for iPhones running iOS version 9 with the arrival of version 18.104.22.168 which is currently in beta testing.

How to Check operating system version??
For users who do not know which version of the operating system they are using, they can simply check it.
- In order to check it, users can go to the Settings option.
- Then select General Information regarding the phone, or there will be an option of About Phone in Setting.
