Hey there WhatsApp users ✌🏼

I bet there's at least one person who receives thousands of pics and videos in WhatsApp and they all land in their iPhone Camera Roll. I bet twice that this is one of the most annoying things in the world. So how can you stop this frenzy and finally take control of your iPhone media?

Why would I do this?

Well, we all have those chats with a million participants, college groups, or parent chats where the moms and dads discuss if kids should stay at home or go to school during the quarantine. And yes, not even a single percent of all the videos and images that you receive is what you need to be saved on your iPhone. 

You just lose track of your iPhone storage and it really gets on your nerves. Your Camera Roll becomes a mess where you can't find a necessary pic or video.

Makes sense? Then let's make WhatsApp stop saving all this spam!

Right, so if you're tired of spending bunches of time deleting all the useless media from WhatsApp, just follow these simple steps:

1. Open WhatsApp

3. Turn off the toggle for "Save to Camera Roll"


Congrats, you've got it sorted! Now you can sigh with relief and not worry about the mobile data usage or filling up your iPhone storage.😌
