Ok, the latest version is there, but it's not in the iOS "Updates" tab.

Instead search for WhatsApp as if you're installing it for the first time. Then you'll see the newer version 2.19.51, and can update.

It looks like Apple need to improve the AppStore for getting urgent fixes out. How many people updated WhatsApp in the AppStore and assumed everything is ok when they still had the vulnerable version?
