Sending some of my favorite photos to friends and loved ones on WhatsApp has always charmed my happiness. To be fair to all, it’s one of my funniest moments. However, at times due to some miscellaneous reasons like poor internet connection, sending photos via WhatsApp on iPhone becomes an annoying task. Either it takes unbelievably long to time to send through a photo or the entire process gets stuck and fails to do the job.
Much to my surprise, there are times when photos can't be sent through WhatsApp on my iPhone even if there is proper internet connection. Having experienced this issue quite a number of times myself, I have discovered some tricks that let me fix this issue straightway.
If you also can't send iPhone photos on WhatsApp, here is how you can resolve this issue right away. Take a look.
- Turn off Wi-Fi or cellular data whatever you are using. Settings app → Wi-Fi or Cellular/Mobile. And then, turn on Airplane Mode.
- Alternatively, you can do it from control center as well.
- After a while, turn off Airplane Mode. Then turn on the Wi-Fi or Cellular Data.
- Many a time, I have been able to fix some minor issues by simply hard resetting my iPhone. Press and hold Home button and sleep/wake button at once for about ten seconds.
Internet connectivity issue can be resolved by resetting the network settings. On a number of occasions, this trick has worked for me.
Try to send a photo to your friend on WhatsApp as usual. You would be able to do it successfully.
If you still haven’t fixed this issue, then continue with the further process.
Clear WhatsApp Chat History

If you don't want to lose chat history, you can back it up and restore it later.
Once WhatsApp has been cleaned up, you may be able to send photos. Do let us know if this has worked for you.
