Replace iPhone phones

iPhone devices have recently entered the market with two SIM cards with the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. They include a technology called eSIM, which is essentially a virtual SIM provided by mobile operators.

While this technology is currently very limited and is being applied by about 12 companies, it is not yet widely available. So it is expected that in a few years it can settle down peacefully in the world.

But in reality, there is no official and/or effective way to do this on iPhone.

Apps to mirror apps on Android and iOS

There are many apps available that allow WhatsApp mirroring, which allows users to use multiple accounts on a single device. Though some are not recommended because privacy is questionable; we will talk about it here, however if you make the decision to have it on your device, you must accept the possible risks that its use may involve.

Even so, we will give you a detailed explanation of which ones are the most used by people who need this feature on their mobile phones. In case you cannot use the dual messaging technology offered by some devices, you will have several options at your disposal.

1- WhatsApp++ application

This app is only available for iOS; allowing users to have two WhatsApp accounts on the same mobile device without any problem. The only thing you need to do is download it and for that you need to search for WhatsApp Plus++.

It is easy to set up, just like the original application, the only difference is that upon confirmation you need to enter the phone number of the second SIM. This means that you will be able to use two accounts from the same device.

However, there are many risks associated with its installation, as well as other alternatives in iOS systems, due to its complexity and other changes that must be made in order to use two WhatsApp accounts, as others have this incredible feature. This option is not recommended at all for Apple operating systems.

2- Application in parallel space

This application is only available for Android phones and allows the user to duplicate different networks downloaded from play store. You just need to download the app, install and run it. Once this is done, the application will allow you to easily copy WhatsApp, creating a second account as a copy of the original to which you can configure with the phone number you want.

3- GBWhatsApp application

This application is only available in APK format which means it is not available in the official Play Store directory. To get it, click on GBWhatsApp so you can download it to your mobile device.

Don't forget to turn on the Unknown Sources feature on your Android device so that you can install this unofficial tool from Play Store.

4- The Disa application

Unlike other Apps, this is an application that does not feature cloning of installed applications. Its main function is to be a social network manager that, once installed on your phone, will group several applications in one place.

However, you can use it to log into WhatsApp with a different account than the one you originally have, which means that another account will be activated and in turn you can have the main account active. This way, you get the same effect as having two accounts on the same mobile device.

5- Parallel U application

In addition to Parallel Space, this application works in exactly the same way since it allows you to clone the applications you have on your mobile phone, you can search for them in the Play Store and download them if you want to use them. Sometimes it is very useful to have different phone lines and use them on the same device for greater convenience. This way you avoid having to carry two mobile phones with you.

Connecting your social media accounts like WhatsApp, Facebook and others to the same device and using it at the same time makes it much easier to communicate with people. So there are various tools with this feature, nowadays companies are also officially including them more and more in mobile phones to provide this feature.

6- App Valley

It complies with the Jailbreak function in Apple, however it is a new product and taking into account the differences that led to the failure of the previous one, for now it is a little more secure. However, it's important to note that it's not software that the App Store deems appropriate.

It is rather a shop compatible with the latest versions of iOS; and that its function is to modify all types of social networks. From it you can access WhatsApp++, including the "pirated" version of Instagram, Spotify and many others.

7- Cloning apps

It is very new to have two WhatsApp accounts on the same mobile phone, and it has been banned by Google Play at the moment, the reasons are not very good. Maybe he'll be back soon (or become a close relative). And as its name indicates, its function is to copy from any type of application installed on your mobile phone.
