Apparently it affected some users on iPhone specifically.

There haven't been any reports of it happening on Android.

That's obviously a big issue if you want to be alerted by friends and family whenever they have something important to say.

The only way you would know you had a new message is by opening WhatsApp manually.

And that's not ideal.
