Download WhatsApp Watusi IPA for iOS on iPhone

Download the latest version of WhatsApp Watusi IPA for iOS from this page and learn how to install it on your iPhone using AltStore, Cydia, or third-party app stores.

WhatsApp is one of the leading message apps for iOS. Even though it is owned by Facebook which has received much criticism recently, the app’s user base has been growing steadily month over month.

WhatsApp allows users to easily send and receive messages, photos, videos, and documents as well as do voice and video calls over the internet.

The app is very slow when it comes to releasing new features and that is because the company places more emphasis on providing a satisfactory user experience rather than releasing features that could degrade the experience and introduce bugs.

That said, there are third-party tweaks for WhatsApp that add new features and enhancements to the app. One such app is called WhatsApp Watusi.

What is WhatsApp Watusi?

WhatsApp Watusi is a modded version of WhatsApp for iOS that brings many new features to the messaging app such as disabling delivery tickmarks, dark mode, saving statuses, customizing the interface, and much more. It is installed as a stand-alone app and replaces the original WhatsApp app.

You can download the Watusi IPA on your iPhone from this article and install it to enjoy all the features that it provides. The installation guide is provided later in this article.
