Hi,

Can anyone tell me whether it's possible to transfer Whatsapp chats to iPhone, and if so, how?

I have backed up my Android Whatsapp folder and I have it on my PC now, but can it be restored to the iPhone?

I look forward to hearing from you, thanks!

I think it's just simple as installing that over iPhone. Just have a conversation backup on the app itself for now through the create backup in the app itself option. And then when you will install it over iPhone and register with the same number all the chats would be recovered. I did the same for mine.

Hi Olivia,

Thanks for trying to help! However, everybody else (on other forums) told me that it cannot be done because the two operating systems are different and do not recognize Whatsapp backup files. Did you really manage to recover all your previous conversations? From Android to iPhone? If you don't mind, would you explain the step-to-step process you used? Thanks!!! :bashful:

No, I don't think so. Both Android and iPhone forums apply, since I went from an Android to an iPhone. Meybe some former Android user managed to do what I am trying to do and can help - this is my hope.

Thanks for your concern.

Just teasing, since you're trying to get Android fans to condone your wayward straying to iPhone... :)

Or you can download a tool called Backuptrans Android WhatsApp to iPhone Transfer to help. No root/jailbreak required.

I think it's clear that periodically I will need to use iTunes for major updates of either the software or firmware to backup iPhone. In the mean time, given the software available to us through jailbreaking, I think I can realistically survive without it.

I am open to more suggestions!

You may have found many approaches to transfer Whatsapp chats between Android and iPhone. Actually, there are many Android and iPhone transferring tool on the Internet, however, some of them are either too complex to operate or the functions of the tool is too simple that can only help you transfer some certain type of data like Whatsapp chats,contacts and music. However, if you try Phone Transfer, you can transfer Whatsapp chats,photos, contacts, music, videos, etc, any data that you like.

Phone to Phone Transfer *admin edit: Promoting paid products/services is not allowed*, the almighty and efficient data transferring tool, helps you transferring Android photos into iPhone with simply 3 steps – “Launch” “Connect” and “Copy”. With these 3 steps, you can move your Galaxy Note 3 photos to iPhone 6/6 Plus/5s/5c without difficulty.

WhatsApp has become one of the most popular communication tools on the planet. But if you want to transfer your account from computer to a new device, your old messages don't automatically come with you.Here's what I suggest you to do:
Connect your iPhone via USB to the PC. Because you've already downloaded WhatsApp onto your new handset, the folder "WhatsApp / Databases" should now exist. If not, you can manually create a new "Databases" folder in the "WhatsApp" folder yourself.
Copy your WhatsApp conversation backup file into that folder.
Now start WhatsApp on your iPhone and verify your phone number. You should now get a notification that a message backup was found. Just tap "Restore", and you're done. After a few seconds, all of your messages should have safely returned.
If this is too complicated for you or you would prefer some more easier and safer way to restore WhatsApp folder, you can Google FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery. I've used it and it worked. So this would be my only suggestion if I ever have to made one.

Hi! This is quite an ordinary problem for many people.If you want to back up your Whatsapp chat to iPhone, you can download iPhone Transfer, which can help you restore your lost data or the data you keep it on PC/iCloud/iTunes.

Yes, it is possible. With the right tools, you can easily transfer WhatsApp messages from Android to iPhone. All you need to do is plugging your Android and iPhone to computer via UBS cables. Also, ensure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on the computer and your Android device have enabled USB debugging.

I tried every single solution but its not possible to transfer WhatsApp chats to iPhone unless you use some third-party tool. I recently bought a new iPhone 6s after the recent price drop and use this Android WhatsApp to iPhone migrator http://www.iphone-to-pc.com/android-whatsapp-to-iphone-migrator.html to copy my all whatsapp chat with attachments from my old Android (galaxy s5) to iPhone 6s.

Best thing about this software is that it doesn't ask to root your Android device. For detailed instructions, you can follow this article http://www.iphone-to-pc.com/transfer-whatsapp-chat-messages-from-android-to-iphone.html
