Question: WhatsApp gone after last update; can't Open or find it at all.
Why has WhatsApp and other apps gone after being updated?
Last week I updated WhatsApp using AppStore. After that downloaded, it was impossible to open the app. It's on the list of Apps in AppStore, but clicking "Open' does nothing. I can't download it again as the phone knows it's got it. The icon for it has gone from my screen - so I can't even delete the app to re-install it.
This initially happened on my old model 5c - I upgraded to an SE this week (not for that reason!!), and the problem is still exactly the same.
I think it's a virus, since the same thing then happened to Messenger and Facebook app on the new phone,. Has anybody heard of a virus affecting social media apps? All other apps I updated work fine (games, shopping, the AA, mail etc) it's only those 3, and by coincidence they are all social media.
my new phone has IOS 11.2.2. The 5c runs 10.3.3. Both have spare memory.
iPhone SE, iOS 11.2.2
