According to a screenshot shared by WABetaInfo and an article posted by WhatsApp Help Center only iOS 12 and newer versions will support WhatsApp.
Users using WhatsApp on iOS 10 or iOS 11 need to update to iOS 12 to continue using a messaging app. You can still continue to use WhatsApp on iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6s but you need to update to the latest version of iOS. If you are an Android user, your phone needs to run on OS 4.1 or newer to run WhatsApp.
Unfortunately, WhatsApp will no longer be available on iPhone 5 and 5C since iOS 12 is not compatible with these devices.
