Cathcart explains, “We performed a lot of study on the technology that powers many devices.” “Being able to use it even when your phone isn’t on is incredibly vital for a tablet app.”

This is great news for iPad users who wish to use WhatsApp on a larger screen. While Cathcart did not specifically state that WhatsApp will be coming to the iPad, it appears that this prospect is rapidly approaching.
