As WhatsApp is planning to introduce a bottom navigation bar on WhatsApp for Android, spotted during the development of the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, there are also plans to introduce some minor changes to the interface for the iOS app, with a new design offered by iOS APIs that makes the app feel more visually up-to-date. In particular, thanks to the WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 update available on the TestFlight app, we discovered that the first change will involve some sections of the application, such as the app settings, available in a future update:
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is planning to bring a new style to the app settings, where every section of the app settings appears with rounded corners and small margins around the edges. Note that this is not limited to this section as even other sections of the app will get this style. The new design will be more focused on providing a consistent visual design throughout the application as it definitely provides a cleaner look to the app. In addition, the new design will also be more visually modern as this is the latest style supported by iOS.
The new design is under development and it will be available in a future update of the app for all beta testers who have installed iOS 13 and newer versions of iOS. As always, we plan to publish an article on this website when a new update of WhatsApp beta that supports the new design is available.
