It seems that a new WhatsApp update has been released for iPhone devices, which solves an issue that has been bugging users for quite a while. We remind you that the WhatsApp application for iOS was not allowing users to hit the green send button while being offline.

Well, from now on, you will be able to write messages while offline and once the internet connection is re-established, they are sent to the recipient. We remind you that this feature has been available on the Android version of WhatsApp for quite a while. This particular feature is very useful when you travel, especially by train or car, and the signal is not so strong.

We should mention that Google has taken the similar approach in the latest update for its search application. In other words, the search queries are saved if you have a bad signal and the results are showed as soon as your device connects back to the internet.

The WhatsApp version 2.17.1 for iPhone comes also with storage management and file-sharing improvements. In addition, the application allows you to send more photos and video files in a single message. You can now send up to 30 photos and 10 video files in a single message.

By heading to the application’s Settings->Data and Storage Usage->Storage Usage, you will be able to see exactly how much space each of your chats takes up. This way, you will know when a chat is using too much space and maybe decide to delete some of the photos or files from it.

We should remind you that there are rumors, which suggest that a Video Conference feature will be added to the WhatsApp application sometime soon. Unfortunately, the developers have not confirmed anything about this yet, so we should take these rumors with a bit of salt, as they might prove to be just hoaxes.
