Now iOS users can share priceless life moments or viral memes confident details shine instead of distorting into pixelated nightmares.
The breakthrough rights a longstanding wrong per critics who chastised WhatsApp’s practice of aggressively compressing and resizing iPhone media files pre-upload. Years saw this well-meaning efficiency measure ruin visuals degraded into blotchy, desaturated impressions lacking nuance or personality.
No more. WhatsApp’s refreshed iOS handling honors iPhone videography and photography prowess at last. Whether capturing first steps or once-in-lifetime sights, shared memories now exhibit lifelike accuracy thanks to the updates. The difference will soon be striking as users realize noble aging dogs, emotive infants and priceless scenes no longer suffer undue artifacts.
To access full-size sharing, iPhone owners simply select “Document” when attaching media content instead of traditional “Photo” or “Video” tags. The recipient will see just the filename pending download completion – but crisp perfection hides behind that preview. Such small steps restore sent media integrity yet align with privacy-forward communication ideals.
The one catch? Android brethren must continue compressing before sending until their app updates eventually match the iOS enrichment. But iPhone early adopters rejoice! Shared moments will only sharpen from here on out thanks to WhatsApp.
