WhatsApp 2.11.5 (iOS 7 Update) Includes New Flat Design, Now in Beta Testing

Report claims WhatsApp Inc. is working on a fresh update for iOS 7 users

WhatsApp apparently is being redesigned for iOS 7, but the company behind the popular messaging service hasn’t been too eager to spread the word.

According to a report dug up by reader Matias Santos, the developers of WhatsApp have said that “soon a new version of the app will be available, characterized mainly by a flatter and more transparent design style.”

WhatsApp Messenger 2.11.5 will make images sent in the chat appear larger, and users will actually be able to edit the photos within the app (think effects).

The favorites list will display the profile pictures of each contact, and users will also get a few new gestures, according to the report.

The WhatsApp iOS 7 update is currently in beta testing “and is still very unstable,” according to testers. The source also seems to have leaked some screenshots of WhatsApp 2.11.5 (above).
