For Fun or Business purposes, Some persons save Thousands of Whatsapp Contacts. These Persons get Thousands of Whatsapp Status Views and Engagements. This is called Whatsapp Tv.
Although you only need engagement, yet thousands of them will keep Posting Whatsapp Status and sending you Messages. This leads to so much RAM Usage on your Phone. As such, iPhones hang for Whatsapp Tv.
You may be wondering, iPhones come with the best processors on any Phone, how come even up to iPhone 12 Pro will hang as Whatsapp active contacts exceed 6000?

Why iPhone Whatsapp Freezes
- Whatsapp isn’t optimized yet to handle too many active contacts (6k+)
- iPhones use more Processor power and less RAM. The common ones are 2GB to 4GB RAM.
- Whatsapp TV uses so much RAM in addition to other Apps you run.
- Since iPhones don’t have much RAM, They will hang with thousands of active contacts on Whatsapp.
I did an experiment of 6k Whatsapp Contacts with iPhone 12 Pro and it still hanged. Meaning, no iPhone yet can handle 6k to 20k contacts comfortably.
Android Phones Like Samsung and OnePlus get 6GB to 16GB of RAM which is loved by Whatsapp for many contacts. As such, they are preferable for Whatsapp Tv.
I tried 6k to 10k contacts with Galaxy S20 Plus and it didn’t have much issue; the Lag wasn’t so annoying. I also tried many Whatsapp Contacts with some other Flagships.
In summary, iPhones are very good when you have a few thousand Whatsapp Active contacts. But for contacts more than 6000, I recommended you use a good android phone with 8GB RAM or above to prevent loss of chats or major Lags.
