These are the Android and Apple smartphones affected by the internet blackout of September 30


As of this September 30, 2021, tens of thousands of devices in the world will lose the ability to navigate Internet. This is due to the expiration of a “credential” that allows the connection between the computers and the servers that host the services and Internet pages.

The affected devices are mainly all those that are considered “discontinued” in the market and whose departure dates date from about 10 years ago. Although these terminals were no longer sold anywhere, until September 29, 2021, the devices retained their qualities of access points to Internet information. But, after September 30, they will now only be objects to play multimedia content stored in them.
