WhatsApp Is Buggy in iOS 9, And Here Are The 6 Common Problems


Here we go again:

WhatsApp hasn’t been optimised or updated for iOS 9 yet, and that leaves the messenger with tonnes of painful problems – from crashing to lagging and loading a blank conversation.


And in this article, we have listed some of the most common problems iPhone users are facing when using the WhatsApp messenger on iOS 9 firmware:

1. Screen Blanks Out / Doesn’t Load

Whenever you open the WhatsApp Messenger to check messages, all you get is a blank screen that never loads any content.

2. Lagging / Slowness

WhatsApp lags heavily when you take actions such as scroll through the conversation or switch between calls, chats and contacts. Remember that even iOS 9 is slow and lags.

3. Volume Drops As You Play Music

WhatsApp stops the song in the background as you type and send a multimedia message to your friend – pic, audio, or video file.

4. Can’t Verify Call / Setup WhatsApp

Only iOS 9.1 beta users are affected with this issue wherein WhatsApp doesn’t allow you to verify your WhatsApp account.

5. Sideway Notifications

WhatsApp delays in sending notifications. And if that wasn’t enough, you also get a notification on the left side of your screen (even when you are holding the device vertically).

6. Blank Conversation Bubble

Say you are in a group messaging thread, then WhatsApp will show you a blank conversation bubble with no text / content. The content appears when you restart the messenger, but it is still a bug that needs to be addressed.

    I also noticed that I cannot start a new chat without going to the contact first. I had the volume issue as well.
