BlackBerry recently stated that support for old BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 will be phased down. Customers who continue to use phones with such software will no longer receive fixes to ensure that the carrier or Wi-Fi connection stay working, according to the business.
As a result, even fundamental features including calls, cellular data, SMS, and emergency calls on BlackBerry phones may cease working. Of course, BlackBerry smartphones running Android are unaffected. On January 4, 2022, BlackBerry OS support will come to an end.
Those who still use Blackberry smartphones should back up their information as quickly as possible.
Back in the day, Blackberry, a brand with a following comparable to that of the Apple iPhone today, was one of the most popular cellphones. Around a decade ago, Blackberry was recognized for its encryption and was the favoured choice for security-conscious consumers or high-profile users.
