WhatsApp has released version 2.12.15 for iPhone just recently. One of the major issues the update fixed is a bug that caused storage problems for users. The app was using a lot of storage space which caused the application to crash. But other than the storage issue, other updates were also included with the latest release. This post will look into the changes made for WhatsApp 2.12.15.
Things to Keep in Mind
Before we take a look at the features added for 2.12.15, here’s what you should know about WhatsApp updates for iPhone:
It’s always recommended that you update to the latest version of WhatsApp when they become available. Not only will it provide you with the latest features but it also helps in terms of security. The last thing you want is for your app to cause you security issues just because you didn’t update it when a new version was available.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you need at least iOS 6 or later for WhatsApp to work on your device. In addition, WhatsApp prefers that you use original devices because they can’t provide support for iPhones that have been modified. Yes, the company doesn’t restrict you from using jailbroken or unlocked devices but bear in mind that they can’t help you in case you run into any trouble.
