How to Transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone

WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in the world that has long since broken down the billion active users. Unfortunately, among the many features at the moment there is no backup on their servers at least for chats and therefore to save multimedia data and conversations we must rely on manual backup or relying on the cloud services of Android (Google Drive) and iOS (iCloud) to transfer data to another device.

In fact, with official tools it is not possible in any way to pass conversations and multimedia files of WhatsApp for example from Android to iOS but recently there is a fantastic software that allows you to make the passage of chats from Android and iOS.

Just because WhatsApp does not allow you to save the conversations files on the cloud owner here that does not even allow you to carry WhatsApp chat from Android to iPhone we help you.

In this article we will describe how to transfer WhatsApp messages to a new device from Android on iPhone.
