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 method to easily transfer data from one device to another unless both the devices use the platform.

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

How to transfer WhatsApp messages from Android to iPhone

Transfer using dr.fone

  • To begin, download the dr.fone tool on your computer.
  • Now, connect your Android device and iPhone to the computer.
  • Open the dr.fone tool and tap on ‘Restore social app’.
  • Select ‘WhatsApp’ and click on ‘Transfer WhatsApp messages’.
  • The app will now connect to both your phones and show the two devices on the screen.
  • Click the ‘Transfer’ button at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • The transfer process will begin, and you will be able to see the transfer status on your computer.
  • Once the transfer is complete, tap the ‘Ok’ button and disconnect your device.

  • Click on ‘Export Chat’ and select the contact whose chat you want to transfer.
  • Now, you can select whether you want to include the media in the backup or not.

  • Tap send and restore this message in your iPhone.
Transfer using local backup
