Hide Last Seen Timestamp in WhatsApp on iPhone, Share Music and more
Apple has made its iOS devices non user-friendly to some extent because it’s not open source and many of app developers can’t insert some of the required features in their apps. I have seen many apps that are working fine with more features in them for Android devices, but when it comes to iOS, various features are missing. E.g. WhatsApp for Android has built-in feature to send music files to other contacts, but developers aren’t able to add this functionality in WhatsApp for iOS.

Similarly, you can’t delete text messages in bulk available in your iMessage, that seems really weird because iOS doesn’t offer even basic features to its users. The lack of functionalities forces users to jailbreak their devices even they are losing their warranty.

The most common problem with WhatsApp is the “Last Seen Timestamp” available in every chat. If I don’t want others to see my last seen timestamp then there is no option available in WhatsApp to hide it. Some geeks are saying that anybody can remove this last seen timestamp by just going to WhatsApp> Settings> Account> Privacy> Last Seen and turn in off; but wait a minute, I’ve tried this method and it only removes timestamp for you, others can still see the last seen timestamp.
Furthermore, there is no option to send music files via WhatsApp in iOS, I’ve shared a step by step guide to send music files via whatsApp, but that’s quite lengthy and users are asking me to provide any short method, so I found a jailbreak tweak that lets you do all of these things in your WhatsApp. To get this tweak you must have a jailbroken iDevice, with this guide you can jailbreak your iOS 7.1/7.1.1/7.1.2 device with pangu and to jailbreak devices running iOS 7.0.x use evasi0n tool.
The tweak is called WhatsApp+ and is compatible with almost every iOS version, you can install it free of cost from Cydia store; search this tweak by typing WhatsApp+ in the search bar. Below are some of its best features:
Remove Last Seen Timestamp (Stealth Mode)
WhatsApp+ helps you to remove last seen timestamp by modifying some configuration of this tweak. Simply go to your iOS’s settings and open WhatsApp+ and turn the “Stealth Mode” on. Your last seen timestamp will be removed instantly, it will not take 24 hours time just like WhatsApp’s official app. Furthermore, no messages like typing… and recording… will be shown on WhatsApp chats.
Send Music Files Directly from WhatsApp
WhatsApp+ tweak will add “send music feature” in your WhatsApp messenger. You just need to enable it from WhatsApp+ settings.
Unlimited Media Sending
You can’t send media files including photos, videos and music having size of more than 16MB, by this tweak you can send any size of file to others.
Disable Read Receipts
Others won’t be able to see the double tick mark on their WhatsApp, even you have received and read their messages.
Full Sized Profile Picture
You can add any size’s of picture to your profile without cropping it, in WhatsApp by default you have to crop your profile picture because you can upload only a certain size of picture.
Other Minor Features
Text Color: You can change your text’s color in WhatsApp, also you can select any color for your text.
Password Protect WhatsApp: As discussed earlier about JR locker tweak that password protects all of your data, WhatsApp+ also performs the same task only for WhatsApp, you can set password for WhatsApp, nobody can access your WhatsApp without entering password.
