This year, the popular WhatsApp messenger will be nine years old. The monthly active audience of the service totals more than one billion people.
But Facebook, which owns the messenger, is in no hurry with expanding its customer base. WhatsApp is available for Android smartphones, iPhone, Windows and macOS-compatible laptops and computers, but it still cannot be installed on the iPad.
Officially not. But there is an unofficial way to launch WhatsApp on the iPad, and we will talk about it today.
Why WhatsApp on iPad
For many, the iPad is not just a device for watchings, games and reading. A number of users use the tablet as a working tool.
During correspondence in the messenger it is very inconvenient to constantly be distracted by a smartphone. Agree, it is much more convenient to receive notifications directly on the iPad.
Install WhatsApp on iPad
Note: This method involves the installation of an unofficial WhatsApp client and we do not undertake to guarantee the security and confidentiality of correspondence.
Step 1. On your iPad, open the Safari browser and go to http://tweakboxapp.com.
Step 2 Press the button “Download App”. An icon with a loading TweakBox application will appear on the Springboard.
Step 3 Wait for the download to finish. During installation, TwekBox will ask for permission to install the profile. Select “Install” and enter your master password.
If such a request does not appear, go to Settings. Profiles and select “Trust this application” in TweakBox settings.
Step 4 After the installation is complete, launch TweakBox and go to the Apps tab. Tweaked Apps.
Step 5 Install the Watusi app. After the installation is complete, the long-awaited WhatsApp messenger will appear on the screen.
Launch the application, enter your phone number and enter the verification code. A few seconds, and setting up WhatsApp on the iPad can be considered complete.
Of the obvious shortcomings of this installation method, there is a lack of proper adaptation of the messenger to the iPad screen and a periodically appearing streak of advertising.
On the other hand, today it is the only way to launch WhatsApp on the iPad until Facebook decides to release a full-fledged client.
