How to Use Two WhatsApp Accounts on iPhone

WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps. The service belongs to the company Facebook who is now called Meta, and is used by billions of people around the world.

However, WhatsApp has some limitations that are not present with other instant messaging apps, such as the lack of an Apple Watch app. For example, Telegram allows users to quickly switch between multiple accounts on its app. WhatsApp does not offer this feature, but there is a solution to work around this limitation. Here’s how to use two WhatsApp accounts on an iPhone.

Phones that can use two SIM cards simultaneously have been around for years, but for some unknown reason, WhatsApp does not allow switching accounts on its applications. Thanks to WhatsApp Business, a version intended for companies, you can use two accounts on your phone.

Note that Xiaomi smartphones have a function for cloning applications (including WhatsApp, Instagram, etc.) and thus allowing you to connect to two different accounts.

If you’re unfamiliar with the WhatsApp Business app, it offers all the features of the “regular” version plus auto-replies and catalogs. The difference with the standard version is that WhatsApp will mark your account as a work account if you use this version of the application.

  1. Go to the App Store and search whatsapp business. If you already use the WhatsApp Business app: find WhatsApp
  2. Download the app.

At this point, you will have two WhatsApp apps on your iPhone: the normal app and the Business version.

Create an account on the app you just installed. This will allow you to use each of the WhatsApp apps for a separate number/account.

Whether it’s another number for work or a number you only share with a certain group of people in your life, now you can have a dedicated WhatsApp account on the same iPhone.
