Cannot Install WeChat on iPhone

If you can’t install WeChat on iPhone, you should do and check the following steps:

  • iPhone should have enough storage to install. (291 MB)
  • Download and install WeChat on App Store or iTunes.
  • Don’t have the app from unknown sources.
  • You need iOS 8.0 operating system in your device.

If you don’t do/have one of those options above, you cannot install WeChat on iPhone.

So you will need to check files on your phone and other applications that can stop downloads and installs.
