My WhatsApp Keeps Crashing on iPhone - How to Fix Guide

WhatsApp Keeps Crashing on iPhone

Check out how to fix my WhatsApp keeps crashing on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Eager Apple fans have installed iOS updates on their iPhones, iPads, and iPods. There was no major problem discovered until they found WhatsApp has been affected the most on iOS users. Several users have reported WhatsApp on iPhone crashes and the issues aren’t fixed in the Beta 2 version as well.

This is not a straightforward kind of problem that you see, as on WhatsApp if you type “fi”, “ff” and “tt” (any word containing those duo letters) the app will crash. So if you have received any message containing words like fit, film, or affinity or you type them, the app will crash.

For the best part, there are only a few words in English with a duo combination of “ff” and “tt” but there are thousands of words with “fi” in them. This should be a problem of worry.
