Looking for an easy way on how to restore whatsapp chats from android to iphone? Here’s a simplified, step-by-step tutorial that will walk you through the process.
Migrating messaging data from one device to another can seem complicated, but transferring WhatsApp chats from an Android phone to an iPhone does not have to be difficult. Follow this step-by-step tutorial on how to restore WhatsApp chat history from Android to iPhone and you’ll be chatting with your
contacts in no time.
Download and install the latest version of WhatsApp on your iPhone.
Before you start transferring your WhatsApp messages, be sure to download and install the latest version of WhatsApp on your iPhone. This will ensure all your chats are transferred seamlessly and accurately. Once installed, open the app and proceed to the next step.
Log in with your default phone number.
After the app is installed, enter your default phone number including country code and then tap “Done”. You’ll receive an SMS with a verification code that you need to enter when prompted. Once your code is verified, you can start restoring your WhatsApp messages from Android to iPhone.
On the Android device, launch WhatsApp and tap “Settings” > “Chats” > “Chat History”.
Tap “Export Chat” to the destination of your choice, where you can access the chat on another device. You will be asked if you want to include media from the chat history. As soon as this is done, a file containing all of your messages will be saved. Transfer this file onto an accessible platform such as Dropbox or email for step two.
Select the “Back Up” option to create a backup file of all your WhatsApp conversations.
Open WhatsApp on your Android device and go to the settings menu. Tap “Chats” and then select “Chat backup.” The app will create a backup file maximum of once per day depending on your settings. You can also tap the Backup button to manually create a back-up file of your messages at any time.
Using a USB drive or an online transfer platform, move the backup file from the Android phone to the iPhone device.
You can transfer the back-up file to Google Drive to be downloaded on the Apple device. Alternatively, you can move it through a USB cable or popular online data transfer platforms such as Share IT and Xender. Once the backup file is transferred to the destination phone, open WhatsApp and restore the chat.
