WhatsApp just changed for EVERYONE with an iPhone – did you spot it?
IPHONE users may notice something a bit different about WhatsApp very soon.
The Meta-owned app is testing a new feature that'll help you get a quick glance of who's messaging like never before.
At the moment when you get a notification from someone you see the WhatsApp logo and their name.
But that all looks set to change.
According to early trials seen by WABetaInfo, you'll see the profile photo of the person or group who's messaged you instead.
Apparently it's only been released to some beta testers running iOS 15 for the moment.
There's no indication whether it'll make it's way onto Android as well just yet.
In fact it's so early in development that WhatsApp may well decide not to go ahead with the idea altogether.

If it does launch anytime soon, it'll be the first change to come on the app for 2022.
The platform has already made several changes in recent months.
In December, it finally listened to fans and added a voice messaging preview feature.
It also began allowing users to set self-destruction timers for all of your chats.
That means all texts will automatically delete after a chosen period of time.
Until the new profile photo tweak launches, make sure your WhatsApp settings are in the best possible state for the year ahead.
