Human is a moody creature of God. Whatever he does depends on his mood, be it talking to someone or ignoring the other one completely. Though social media platforms are a blessing as they have brought us closer to each other. But with every positive aspect, there is always some negative points. WhatsApp is one of the best messaging platforms and after including video call option, it has become favourite. It keeps on launching new features, but when launched “blue ticks”, it was nothing more than alarm for many. Usually, we do not want to let other people know that we have read their messages but due to these blue ticks, we are forced to reply to them. There is good news for iPhone users. Now they can read texts from the sender without triggering the blue ticks.
In case you are hiding from someone and don’t want them to know that you have read their WhatsApp messages, you need to turn on your Airplane mode. With this method, blue ticks will not appear and you will receive the message as well. However, the disadvantage of this method is that as soon as you will turn on the airplane mode, the sender will come to know that you have read the messages.
Furthermore, you can turn off read receipts totally however by doing so, you will also not able to read the recipients of the person at other ends. As both the above-mentioned methods are not up to the mark so here a new method for iPhone users.
How iPhone Users can Read WhatsApp texts without triggering blue ticks
This method is applicable to those iPhone users, who have a model which have the 3D touch. The list of iPhone models who have 3D touch are as follows:
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
Anyway, the screen of iPhones having 3D touch is very sensitive. If you press the display hard, you will get some new options. Upon tapping on the WhatsApp chat, you will be directed straight to the messages. However, if you keep on pressing hard and hold to WhatsApp chat, you will get a full-screen preview of everything inside the app.
In this way, you can read loads of WhatsApp messages without triggering blue ticks. When you have read the message, let go of the hold and you will be taken back to the main window.
