WhatsApp is one of the leading message apps for iOS. Even though it is owned by Facebook which has received much criticism recently, the app's user base has been growing steadily month over month.

WhatsApp allows users to easily send and receive messages, photos, videos, and documents as well as do voice and video calls over the internet.

The app is very slow when it comes to releasing new features and that is because the company places more emphasis on providing a satisfactory user experience rather than releasing features that could degrade the experience and introduce bugs.

That said, there are third-party tweaks for WhatsApp that add new features and enhancements to the app. One such app is called WhatsApp Watusi.

What is WhatsApp Watusi?

WhatsApp Watusi is a modded version of WhatsApp for iOS that brings many new features to the messaging app such as disabling delivery tickmarks, dark mode, saving statuses, customizing the interface, and much more. It is installed as a stand-alone app and replaces the original WhatsApp app.

You can download the Watusi IPA on your iPhone from this article and install it to enjoy all the features that it provides. The installation guide is provided later in this article.

WhatsApp Watusi Features

Here are the main features offered by the Watusi for WhatsApp tweak:

  • Disable delivery receipts, read receipts, last seen status, and typing indicator
  • Download statuses to your Camera Roll
  • Block incoming calls from WhatsApp
  • Password protect the app using a passcode or Touch ID
  • Password protect a specific chat with a passcode or Touch ID
  • Pin as many chats as you want
  • View all groups on a single page
  • Disable "Forwarded" indicator
  • Enable dark mode
  • Customize the interface background, text color, and much more
  • Schedule messages
  • Set auto-replies
  • Use a custom ringtone
  • Hide chats
  • Keep the deleted messages in chats
  • Get confirmation before calling

How to install WhatsApp Watusi using Cydia on a Jailbroken iPhone

For this method to work, your iPhone must be jailbroken and have the Cydia app on it. You can jailbreak using unc0ver if your device is compatible. Here's how to install WhatsApp Watusi with Cydia.

1. Jailbreak your iPhone using a jailbreak app that is compatible with your iOS version, such as the unc0ver jailbreak.

2. Open the Cydia app and tap the Sources tab.

3. Press Edit, then select Add.

How to install WhatsApp Watusi without a computer

To install the Watusi app on your iPhone without using a PC, you can use third-party app stores. Here's a list of some of the best app stores for iOS:

  • AppValley
  • Zeus
  • TuTu App
  • Panda Helper
  • TuTu Box
  • Topstore
  • CokerNutX
  • Signulous

The way it works is that you have to install any of these app stores on your iPhone, then search for Watusi from the app store and install it right away. The only downside to this method is that the apps installed from these stores stop functioning very frequently because Apple keeps on revoking their signing certificates.

Another way to install WhatsApp Watusi without a computer is by using the Esign app.
