    Did you have it working on an “old” iPad?
    as far as I’m aware there isn’t an easy/Apple approved way to have WhatsApp on iPad - though I here they’re running some “beta” trials in some places. And there are some workarounds.

    Whatsapp only works with either a phone number or PC or a Mac

    To get it to work on an iPad you need to link the iPad to a phone

    Open whatsapp on your phone, go to settings and select whatsapp web, follow instructions 
  • Have you tried a different browser, I had problems sometimes with safari but less so with Firefox.

    It's an app so you don't use a browser.

    It’s only an app if you have SIM card on your iPad , otherwise it’s browser only at the moment.

    OK thanks. I think it's coming as an app for any iPad though isn't it?
