WhatsApp is a popular messaging app that allows users to send messages, photos and videos to friends and families as well as make a voice call over the internet. Since WhatsApp requires a phone number, it only supports iPhone and not other types of devices such as iPad and iPod.
If you’ve been looking for a way to install WhatsApp on iPad, then you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, I will show you how to download and use WhatsApp on iPad using an app called WhatsPad++. This method doesn’t require a jailbreak and works with iOS 9 and iOS 10.
Download WhatsApp for iPad Using WhatsPad++
Step 1: The first step is to download the WhatsPad++ IPA file.
Step 2: Next, download Cydia Impactor from here. This will be used to install WhatsPad++ onto iPad.
Step 3: Connect your iPad to your computer using a USB cable.
Step 4: Open Cydia Impactor and then drag and drop the WhatsPad++ IPA file onto Cydia Impactor.
Step 5: Cydia Impactor will ask for your Apple ID and password, which is sent to Apple only to sign the IPA file for installation. If you’re not comfortable providing it, then create an alternative Apple ID and use that instead.
Step 6: After you enter your Apple ID and password, Cydia Impactor will install WhatsPad++ onto your device.
Note: If you get the error “Please sign in with an app specific password”, it’s because you have two-factor authentication enabled for your Apple ID. Read this link to find out how to make an app-specific password and use that in Cydia Impactor.
Step 7: Before opening WhatsApp on your iPad, go to Settings -> General -> Profiles (or “Device Management”). Find the profile with your Apple ID and open it.
Step 8: . Tap on the ‘Trust’ button.
Step 9: Now go back to the Home screen and open WhatsApp. You can now use the app on iPad and enjoy its features without the need for an iPhone.
That’s all you need to do to download and install WhatsApp on iPad. Keep in mind that after 7 days the IPA will expire and start to crash. You have to follow the same steps above to re-install the app.
