WhatsApp crashes on several iPhones

In the last few hours, more and more users are reporting problems with the WhatsApp app, which in some cases freezes on opening, preventing them from replying to messages and accessing contact lists.

The problem was reported on Whatsapp, WhatsApp Business and also in the beta version of WhatsApp available via TestFlight. In practice, many users are unable to open WhatsApp, as the app freezes or crashes instantly, effectively preventing them from using the service.

If reports have increased in the last few hours around the world and only affects the iPhone, both with iOS 15.2 and with previous versions of the operating system. Reinstalling the app doesn’t fix the problem.
