WhatsApp recently turned ten and it looks like the messaging app has some surprises for us. The company is ready to release an app for the users of Apple iPad exclusively. Apparently, WhatsApp supports iPhones when it comes to iOS, but for some reason it does not support iPads. The reason for this is not known.

According to some recent reports, WhatsApp’s latest version for iOS will be able to fix some bugs. It also includes some reference to iPad. So it is possible that the iPad users will be able to download WhatsApp’s version 2.19.40.
