WhatsApp Web Enabler
If you own an Android or Windows Phone handset, setting up WhatsApp Web will be a breeze. We?ve even shown you how to do it a while back. Unfortunately, with the nature of the iOS platform and the way WhatsApp?s software is made, it?s currently impossible (at least officially) to have WhatsApp Web working with an iPhone. Moreover, the messaging application?s development is not exactly known to come up with quick updates so you can?t ?expect its desktop client to support iPhones soon.
Thankfully, a crafty iOS third-party dev named iMokhles has come up with a workaround. The tool he developed is called WhatsApp web developer and its available from Cydia. So yes, your iPhone needs to be jailbroken first to enjoy this neat tool. Cupertino Times is among the first to report about this trick and posted a way on how to have it running on iPhones. Check out our outlined guide below on how you can do it yourself.
