How to transfer WhatsApp messages from Android to iPhone
When you are moving from an Android device to an iPhone or vice versa, there are several things that you need to keep in mind. You have to transfer your contacts, photos and other files from your existing device to the new device.

When changing devices, it’s also important to make sure that your WhatsApp messages are transferred properly. WhatsApp does not offer a in-built method to easily transfer data from one device to another unless both the devices use the same platform.

In this post, we will show you how to transfer WhatsApp messages from your Android device to your iPhone.
