WhatsApp slightly different for iPhone users
Via WABetaInfo, the website for all developments around WhatsApp, the changes come to light. So, as mentioned, there are no new features, but a few minor changes are made to the UI of the application.
What is UI anyway?
UI is an abbreviation for User Interface. The UI of an app or website is best described as the user environment. Not just the design, but also the way certain elements work. Thanks to a UI, apps not only look good, but they also work fine.
Among other things, participants in the beta program will have access to a dark mode that is slightly darker than before. Where the icon bar at the bottom of the screen previously tended toward gray, it now flows neatly into the rest of the design.
WhatsApp is not only implementing this change in the Chats screen of its iOS app. iPhone users will also notice in Settings that the navigation bar is darker.
