WhatsApp for iPad ready for release, but a major update is holding it back2
Well, at least Mac users do have a way to handle WhatsApp messages, but iPad owners have no way of using WhatsApp unless they visit the desktop version of the app. Now, a quite accurate leakster claims a WhatsApp has already finished working on an iPad app.
According to the source of the leak, WhatsApp delayed the release of an iPad app because it wanted to build the multi-platform system first. The new system should allow WhatsApp to improve its end-to-end encryption as messages will be sent to more devices within the multi-platform system.
Weirdly enough, WabetaInfo says the iPad app is ready to be released, but WhatsApp has decided to put it on hold until the entire system is ready for use. We'll most likely find out more in the coming months, but at least we know why iPad users have been denied a full-fledged WhatsApp app.
