Popular instant messenger app and of course relatively recent Facebook acquired – WhatsApp has finally received the iOS app update that everyone has been eagerly waiting for. Yes! WhatsApp now perfectly supports the increased screen size iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6.
Its been 3 month since the release of the Apple smartphones and the developer of the popular IM app now added support for them through optimizations which makes the messenger look fair on larger displays. Although it took long way, but nevertheless this new update to WhatsApp for iPhone should be a good one. On an iPhone 6, if you just spend few minutes with it it’s clear that this is the update that thousands of users been waiting for. Gone are the fuzzy text and image elements that plagued the old version on Apple’s latest iPhones and now, you have the app that should perhaps been on the App Store when Apple’s big iPhone release rolled around.
WhatsApp iOS app now got more contacts or extra chat threads on-screen on time and you will obviously get rid of WhatsApp’s previous version. Newer only offers nothing new except for the said optimizations. Well, there are few bug fixes on board which squash bugs and prevent crashes.
WhatsApp 2.11.14 rolled out just about to support the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus though. As per the release notes, WhatsApp is now more stable than ever before thanks to the bug and crash fixers. Experience any crashes, then these fixes will arguably be more important than the extra pixels this new WhatsApp takes advantage of.
You can now download WhatsApp for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus for free of cost and should be available via whichever localization of the iOS App Store you happen to frequent. Even if you haven’t purchased an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you can go and get it right now.
Notably, WhatsApp was available as a beta download previously with full support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but was only limited to those who are jailbroken and knew their own way around installing IPA files via Cydia. But today’s update is official for everyone, so get downloading!
