Ideally, WhatsApp – the latest update – is 89.3 MB in size. However, I’ll be willing to wager that it occupies more on every device owing to the massive amount of documents and data it saves such as videos and pictures.
On my iPhone, it’s currently occupying 317.4 MB even after recent cleaning and rises close to 1 GB for others who receive massive amounts of videos and multimedia files.
And the fact that users have to manually delete files from individual files makes this a serious issue for iPhone users not only from a storage space perspectivestorage space perspective, but from a performance perspective. For this reason, a new market for WhatsApp cleaners for iPhone has opened up. This article reviews a few.
Top 3 WhatsApp Cleaners for iPhone
1 iMyFone Umate Pro iPhone Data Eraser
This multi-functional WhatsApp cleaner for iPhone or the Mac version is packed with the latest technology and functions as both a space-freeing and performance-boosting app. Backed by over 25 data analysis technology, the application searches the nook and cranny of your storage space to unearth files you don’t need such as files stuck inside WhatsApp.
The app also has many other useful features such as iPhone photo compression, removal of temporary files, permanent erasure of previously deleted files, permanent erasure of private files, third-party App fragments and much more.
WhatsApp messages or files such as WhatsApp documents and data, attached photos and videos and private fragments can be erased permanently.

A Comparison of The 3 WhatsApp Cleaner for iPhone
In all, the three applications all have their strengths. In terms of comparison, one has to use the three types of data that WhatsApp produces – messages, attachment, and data fragments – to make judgment.
- Erase WhatsApp messages: WhatsApp being an instant messaging app means a lot of private files and messages end up being exchanged. It is for this reason privacy is a big issue when considering which WhatsApp eraser to use. It is imperative that messages are kept private even after they’ve been deleted and Umate Pro does the best in this regard, having superior ability than the other two. Further to this, Umate Pro offers the ability to search for files already deleted and removes these files permanently.
- Erase WhatsApp attachment: WhatsApp attachments are sometimes referred to as secret space huggers. This is so, because these files are ‘hidden’ and just stay there. Asides the space factor, there are huge privacy risks involved in having potentially dangerous files kept hidden, only for someone to one day fish them out and cause harm to your person. Umate Pro is fantastic in this regard as well as the other two; cleaning and leaving no traces, as well as no chance for the recovery of these files.
- Erase WhatsApp fragments:Fragments such as incomplete files, corrupted files, app caches, and cookies are often retained by the app over time. These files while not complete can impede device performance. Of the three, only Umate Pro is designed to scan for and delete such files with aplomb.

Why Data should Not be Recoverable?
Privacy is a big issue as far as the internet and its usage are concerned. Despite its many benefits, a few nefarious people are always out to take advantage of loopholes including maximizing privacy risks as a result of WhatsApp usage. For this reasons, data or information that can cause serious harm must be deleted. This deletion must be done such that these files can never be recovered no matter the recovery tool used. This way, you can keep your privacy safe and avoid undesirable outcomes.
