Any iPhone not running iOS 9 or newer, or any phone not running at least Android 4.0.3 – also known as Ice Cream Sandwich – will no longer be able to open or operate the Facebook-owned app. This means all iPhone models up to the iPhone 4 will be unable to support WhatsApp, as these phones are not capable of updating to iOS 9.

DOD: Latest AWS Challenge In JEDI Cloud Contract Is ‘Prohibited’ By Law

The U.S. government on Wednesday urged the dismissal of Amazon Web Services’ amended complaint over the JEDI cloud contract, saying that what AWS is attempting to do is not permitted under legal precedent. “AWS was aware of all the facts on which it bases these allegations well prior to both the original award and prior to DoD reaffirming the award on remand,” the U.S. government said in the filing, which was filed by attorneys for the Department of Defense and Department of Justice. “Yet in both circumstances [AWS] declined to raise these allegations until after it learned that its proposal had been rejected.” [Related: Microsoft Azure Creates Top Secret Government Cloud As JEDI Battle Rages On] Bringing forward such allegations at this stage is “prohibited” based on legal precedent, the U.S. government said in the filing.

Many of those people are now working from home and more disconnected than ever. If teams aren’t careful, fragmented information and disconnected processes can quickly hamper progress.
