Users may now move their discussion chat history, images, videos, and voice messages from Android to iPhone using Apple's Move to iOS app. Prior to this update, users could only transfer conversations from iPhone to Android. The option to move WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone is already available in testing, but it will take roughly a week for all users to receive it.

"We're introducing the ability to safely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, images, videos, and voice chats across Android and iPhone while keeping end-to-end encryption to WhatsApp," said Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a statement. "This is a frequently requested function." We introduced the option to move from iPhone to Android last year and are now bringing Android to iPhone."

According to WhatsApp, the transfer technique is only available on new or factory reset iPhones. You must also have Android 5 or above on your Android smartphone and iOS 15.5 on your iPhone.

To begin, launch the Move to iOS app on your Android device and follow the on-screen instructions. When you follow the steps, a code will appear on your iPhone. On your Android phone, you'll be required to input the code. Then, hit "Continue" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, on the "Transfer Data" box, pick "WhatsApp." Then, on your Android phone, hit "Start" to begin the procedure. Then you must wait for WhatsApp to prepare your data for export. You will be signed out of your Android phone once the data is ready.

Then, to return to the Move to iOS app, hit "Next." Then, hit "Continue" to transfer the data from your Android phone to your iPhone and wait for Move to iOS to ensure the transfer is complete. Then, download the most recent version of WhatsApp from the App Store and sign in with the same phone number you used on your previous smartphone. You will then be requested to hit "Start" to finish the procedure.

According to WhatsApp, you may utilise this technique to transfer your account information, profile picture, individual conversations, group chats, chat history, media, and settings. You cannot, however, transfer your call history or display name.

According to the firm, transmitted data does not migrate to cloud storage as a result of migration until an iCloud backup is created. WhatsApp also states that it cannot see the data you send and that your data will remain on your Android phone unless you remove WhatsApp or erase your phone.

Although transferring WhatsApp data from one iPhone to another or from one Android to another has been simple, users have had to discover complicated workarounds when switching from Android to iPhone. The new tool will fix this issue and make the transition much easier.
