In the article about the WhatsApp beta for iOS update, we shared information regarding a revamped settings page. With this enhancement, WhatsApp had plans to introduce further improvements to the interface of the app by bringing a clearer settings screen. After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update, which is available on the TestFlight app, some beta testers may now experiment with the new settings page!

As you can see in the attached screenshot, the settings page is completely redesigned. The settings tab has been replaced by a new tab called “You” that displays our profile photo (when it’s available), and it will be useful to switch to a different account when the multi-account feature is available on iOS. WhatsApp also introduced three new entry points to better highlight the most important sections of the app, allowing easy access to privacy settings, contacts list, and our profile. In addition, a new shortcut placed over the profile photo allows us to view and share our personal QR Code.

In our opinion, the new settings page further confirms their commitment to giving the app a fresh and better look. Note that other UI adjustments announced with the WhatsApp for iOS 23.16.72 update might be widely available soon. However, this update won’t be the only one bringing improvements to the interface of the app. In fact, WhatsApp plans to introduce further interface enhancements in the future, and we will keep you updated about them.

The new settings interface is available to some beta testers that install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for iOS from the TestFlight app, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming weeks.
