Transfer WhatsApp from android to iphone


WhatsApp is the most used chatting app all across the globe. No matter which phone you are using, Android or iOS, you can easily use this app and start chatting with your friends, families, and colleagues.

Using WhatsApp is easy, but when it comes to transferring it from one device to another device, it seems a big task to users. Especially, when you want to move it from the Android device to the iPhone.

So, if you are an Android user who has recently bought the new iPhone and now struggling with transferring WhatsApp to the new iPhone, then don’t worry. This blog will definitely be going to help you in achieving your task.

Even though WhatsApp doesn’t currently support any direct way to transfer chat history and app data from the Android device to the iOS device, there are still few workarounds that will let you do so.

In this article, I am going to share both the automatic and manual methods to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone. For this, you need to read the article till the end without skipping any part.

How to Transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone?

There are several ways to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone. So, let’s check out all the possible ways of doing so.

1: Use 3rd Party Tools

There are so many 3rd party tools available on the internet that may help you to transfer all the WhatsApp data from your Android phone to iPhone. Following are some of the most trustable and reliable apps that can help you to achieve this task:

  • Dr.Fone
  • iCareFone
  • AnyTrans
  • PhoneTrans

In my opinion, Dr.Fone is the best tool when it comes to transferring any data between Android and iOS devices. So, here I am going to explain to you how you can use this tool to migrate WhatsApp from Android phone to iPhone. So, follow these steps carefully:

  • First, connect your Android phone to the PC. Then, select the Backup WhatsApp messages option.
  • Now, the PC will prompt you with several instructions. So, follow all the prompted instructions to back up WhatsApp on your PC.
  • Next, you will be asked to change your WhatsApp settings. To do this, tap on the Settings icon > click on the Chats > hit the Chat backup option.
  • Select the ‘Never’ backup to Google Drive option.
  • Then, tap on the BACKUP.
  • Click on the Next button.
  • Now, it will show you a prompt on your Android phone. If you are not getting any prompt, then tap on the Install button on the Dr.Fone app and click on the Show Again button.
  • Next, verify & restore all of the WhatsApp messages on the Android phone.
  • Now, the WhatsApp backup process will be finished. After this, you need to verify the backup by clicking on the View button.
  • After finishing the backup, it’s time to transfer all WhatsApp data from the Android phone to your iPhone.
  • Connect the iPhone to the PC.
  • Click on the Restore to device button.
  • Go to the backup list and select the recent backup file of your WhatsApp.
  • Click on the Next button.
  • Now, you will be taken to the new window. Here, click on the Restore button. With this, the app will start restoring all the backup data.
  • Now, wait until all the backed-up files get restored on the new iPhone.
  • After this, your WhatsApp will be transferred from the Android phone to the iPhone.

2: Transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone via Email

Another method that I am going to share with you is a manual way and it will be time-consuming. Here, I am talking about migrating WhatsApp from Android to iOS via Email.

WhatsApp allows users another option to do the same and that is by using your Email.

In this method, you will transfer the entire WhatsApp chat history from your Android to the iPhone. However, there is no direct way of doing so, and hence you need an Email to complete this process.

Following are the steps that you need to follow to move WhatsApp chat history from Android to the iPhone:

  • First, open the WhatsApp app on your Android phone.
  • Tap on the Settings icon, the three vertical dots given at the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Then, tap on the Chats option.
  • Next, tap on the Export Chat option to export the WhatsApp chats.
  • On the next screen, you need to select all those contacts whose chat history you want to move to your new iPhone.
  • So, select the contacts, then select the Email you use or using which you want to complete this task.
  • Now, open the inbox of the email you used to transfer the WhatsApp chat history.
  • Now, you will see all the WhatsApp data on your iPhone.


These are the best working methods to move WhatsApp data from Android to any iOS device. These methods are easy and simple to use. So, go ahead with any of these options and you will be able to enjoy your WhatsApp on your iOS device.

Although both ways are effective and work, using the 3rd party tool is the direct approach to do this task. Also, it guarantees 100% success in transferring the entire data. And, the best part is you don’t need to follow any tedious and lengthy manual process.

However, it is totally up to you to with which way you would like to go.
