For all those people who wanted to upgrade to iPhone, maybe the latest iPhone 13, from an Android phone, but were stopped by the fact that WhatsApp chat transfer was not possible, then here is good news. WhatsApp users will now be able to move chats to iOS. Yes, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that WhatsApp chat history can be transferred from Android to iOS. Informing about it on Facebook, Zuckerberg said: “We are adding to WhatsApp the ability to switch securely between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos and voicemails between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption. This is a highly requested feature. We introduced the ability to switch from iPhone to Android last year, and now we’re adding Android to iPhone as well.
It can be noted that last year WhatsApp released a new feature that allows users to migrate their chat history from iOS to Android. Read also : This WhatsApp privacy feature will keep your chats safe! Know the trick
According to a report by WABetaInfo, before starting the chat history migration process, WhatsApp users should have at least Android 5 installed on their Android device and iOS 15.5 installed on their iPhone. Here is how you can transfer WhatsApp chat history between Android and iPhone, according to WABetaInfo:
How to transfer WhatsApp chat history between Android and iPhone:
Connect both of your devices to a power source. Also connect your devices to the Wi-Fi network.
Your iPhone must be brand new or simply factory reset directly in iPhone settings in order to use the Move to iOS app.
When you’re ready, open the Migrate to iOS app on your Android device and follow the instructions in the app.
Enter the same code on Android that is displayed on your iPhone, go ahead and select WhatsApp directly from the data transfer screen.
We are ready to start the data transfer process: press START on your Android device and wait until all data is migrated. You will be signed out of your Android device once the data is fully migrated.
Tap NEXT to return to the Move to iOS app. Finally, you can continue to transfer data from your Android device to your iPhone and wait for the Move to iOS app to complete the process.
After activating your iOS device, install the latest version of WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store: Sign in to WhatsApp using the same phone number you used on your old Android device, press START and hold.
After logging into WhatsApp for iPhone, your chats and media on WhatsApp will finally appear.
When you transfer your chat history across different platforms, WhatsApp is unable to see the data you are transferring. Also, you need to manually enable the end-to-end encrypted backup option directly in WhatsApp for iPhone if you wish, even if you have already enabled encrypted backups on WhatsApp for Android.
