Every year with the new iPhone release, people are switching from an Android-based device to an iOS system. If this is the case with you, then you might need to transfer all your data to a new device, including WhatsApp messages. How to do that?

The good thing, even though you are changing the phone type, you will still be able to have your WhatsApp phone number, profile picture, about, individual and group chats, and settings. It is not as easy as transferring data from one Android to another, but luckily there are several easy enough ways to do it.

Here, we will present to you some of those ways. The first way is using Backuptrans app.

What You’ll Need?

You’ll need to prepare a few things first:


Step 1: Download and Install the Backuptrans WhatsApp Transfer Tool – the installation itself should not take more than 5 minutes. After the app is installed, do not run it yet. Go to Step 2.


Step 2: Backup All the WhatsApp Messages on Your Android Phone


Step 3: Enable USB Debugging on Your Android Phone

  1. Go to Settings on your Android phone
  2. Choose Developer Options section
  3. Make sure the box next to USB Debugging is checked.

Step 4: Connect Your Android phone to Your PC or Mac

Now that your phone’s drivers are correctly installed on your computer, the software will automatically detect the phone and your WhatsApp messages will be automatically loaded into the software. If this does not happen, you must root your Android phone and start again.

Step 5: Backup Your Chats Using the Software


Step 6: Final Step – Transferring the chats to iPhone

Another way to transfer your WhatsApp chat from an Android device to iPhone is via email.

We will go step by step with you through this procedure.

The link to download this app you can find here:

The app can be downloaded to any device – Mac or Windows-based. The steps are similar to the Backuptrans app we have already explained. You need to have your PC or Mac device ready, as well as both Android and iPhone. The app allows you to transfer chats without using iTunes.

After you install the app on your PC or Mac, you will be able to choose between WhatsApp, Viber, and Line transfer.

After the transfer is finished, you are good to go! Open WhatsApp on your iPhone device and you will see all your chats.

If you wish not to use your PC or Mac to do the transfer, there is an option to do it only with your phone. Go to Google PlayStore and download Wutsapper using the link provided below.
