WhatsApp for iPhone Tips to Start Group Chats, Save Profile Photos and iCloud Backups

Some of the tips are very basic and very easy. However, we know that WhatsApp gets a lot of new users every day – quite a bunch of them on the iOS platform.

So here’s to all you folks who’re looking for some cool WhatsApp tips:

#1. How to Start Group Chat On WhatsApp

Starting a group chat on WhatsApp is far easier on iOS than on Android. For starters, there’s just one simple button to tap, and the rest of the things flow like water.

  • Open WhatsApp.
  • Tap on ‘Chats’ from the menu at the bottom.

  • Scroll up and you will see a search field under which there are two buttons. One of these is New Group.
  • Tap on New Group
  • Give a subject (a title for the group)
  • Add participants from the list of WhatsApp contacts
  • Click on Done and your group is now ready!

#2. How to Save WhatsApp Profile Photos to The iPhone

WhatsApp added a new feature which lets you save profile photos of your friends to the camera roll. Again, this is very simple too.

  • Go to a friend’s profile in WhatsApp (do this either by tapping on the profile photo on top of the chat screen or by tapping on the friend’s name from Favorites menu.)
  • Tap on the profile photo to open it/view it.
  • Tap on the share icon on top-right.
  • Tap on Save Image.

#3. How to Take iCloud Backups of WhatsApp Conversations

With the update in July, WhatsApp also pushed a very important feature that was lacking for a long time: chat backups. Interestingly it clubbed iClouds, so users didn’t have to worry about two things: backup management and backup security.

To setup and manage backups:

  • Open WhatsApp.
  • Tap on Settings.
  • Now tap on Chat Settings.
  • Go to Backup.
  • You can setup auto-backups. You can also tap on Backup Now to backup the chats right away. Videos don’t get backed up.
