Like Android users, who have been able to share HD photos with others via WhatsApp from a couple days now, iPhone users now also have this option. But, it’s a gradual rollout and may take a couple of days to reach all iOS users.

There’s no rocket science here. All you need to do is update the app to its latest version and then open it. Head to any chat window, tap on ‘+’ icon and select an image from the gallery. See if there’s a new ‘HD’ icon at the top.
