Apple iPhone users can use two WhatsApp accounts with the help of WhatsApp Business, an official business-oriented version of the app. The app offers all of the features available on the regular version along with other features like auto-replies and catalogs. Notably, if you use WhatsApp Business, it will tag your account as a business. Here’s a step by step guide to install dual WhatsApp on iPhone.

Step 1: Head to the Apple App Store and look for Whatsapp business, if you’re already using the regular WhatsApp app or if you’re already using the WhatsApp Business app, search for WhatsApp.

Step 2: Click on install and download the app.

Step 3: Once done, you will have two WhatsApp apps on your iPhone — the regular one and the Business version.

Step 4: Now, create your WhatSApp account with an alternative number on the one you’ve just installed. This will allow you to use each of the WhatsApp apps for a separate number/account.

Step 5: Once the number is registered, enter the name, email id and other details to complete your profile.

Step 6: Once done, your Secondary WhatsApp account will be created and ready to use.
