WhatsApp Messenger has just been updated for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, a couple of months after the release of Apple’s “bigger than bigger” smartphones.
As a result, the popular Facebook-owned messaging app is now optimized for the larger screens of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, allowing for more content to be seen than the app’s previous zoomed mode on the new iPhones.
Well, better late than never. And at least WhatsApp’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus display optimizations came earlier than the app’s redesign for iOS 7 last year, which came nearly three months after the release of the major software update.
Earlier this month, WhatsApp received a backend update that enabled the display of blue double check marks to indicate message read receipts. Previously, WhatsApp showed only a gray check mark and gray double check marks to indicate successfully sent and successfully delivered messages, respectively.
As for its long-awaited voice calling capability, WhatsApp is not expected to be updated with the highly requested feature until the first quarter of 2015, owing to certain technical challenges.
