Fix 1: Force close the Whatsapp App

The prior fix to troubleshoot any app is to force close the app. Most of the time it works so let’s give it a try.

Step 1: Double click the home button and swipe up the window of that app. or swipe up your finger from the bottom bar, to open the app switcher and force close app by swiping up.

Fix 2: Good internet connection is Required

As I mentioned before a good internet connection is necessary for the smooth working of WhatsApp.If you haveWi-Fi, then disconnect the iPhone and again connect to the network, or you can reset the Wi-Fi router. But if you are using the carrier’s data plan, then the only thing you can do is reset network settings.

For iOS 15 and later users,

Step 1: Go to “Settings” and open “General”.

Step 2: Click on Transfer and reset iPhone – Tap on “Reset” and there click on “Reset Network Settings”. Now follow on-screen instructions to terminate the process.

After a few minutes open WhatsApp and check the issue is gone or not.

In most cases, updating the app is helpful, and some of the relevant issues get fixed because of updating the app. Go to App Store and update the app.

Fix 4: Uninstall and Reinstall the Whatsapp Messenger iOS app

This can help if your Whatsapp got crashed, Whatsapp won’t open, or Whatsapp got frozen. You need to delete the app from your iPhone and again install it from App Store.

  • Step 1: Tap and hold on the Whatsapp icon.
  • Step 2: when you see (x) on the top of the icon tap on it and delete it.
  • Restart the iPhone and again download the app.

This trick is also useful whenever iOS Whatsapp notifications not working.

This action will result in complete data loss so before performing Reset you much take backup.

  • Step 1: Go to “Settings” and open “General”.
