[Easily] How to move your WhatsApp data from Android to iOS

A capability to transfer entire chat histories from an iPhone to an Android device was added to WhatsApp a few months ago. Mark Zuckerberg has just made the announcement that users will soon be able to transfer their WhatsApp data from an Android phone to an iPhone when they upgrade their handsets. In addition, users will have the option to transfer their photos, videos, and voice messages when they make this switch.

In order to accomplish this goal, there are a few prerequisites that must first be satisfied. In order for the transfer to be successful when using the Move to iOS app, the minimum requirement for the Android phone is to be running Android 5 Lollipop, while the minimum requirement for the iPhone is to be running iOS 15.5.

In addition, the WhatsApp application on the Android phone must be running build number 2.22.7.74 or a later version, while the WhatsApp application on the iOS device must be running version 2.22.10.70.

In order for the Move to iOS app to be effective, the iPhone being used must either be brand new or it must have recently undergone a reset to factory settings.

During the time that the transfer is taking place, both phones should be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as well as a power source. In addition, they should share the same password for the Wi-Fi network.

The fact that users won’t be able to transfer peer-to-peer payment messages or WhatsApp’s call history is the only restriction imposed by this process of transferring WhatsApp accounts.

Here’s how to use the Move to iOS app to transfer your WhatsApp chats from an Android device to an iOS device. You’ll need both devices to have WhatsApp installed.

  • To get both of your new devices ready, plug the charging cords into the appropriate outlets first. In addition to this, make sure that the iOS device you will be using is either brand new or has had its factory settings restored. It is necessary for both of your devices to be connected to the same WiFi network.
  • After you have entered the code, the two devices will automatically begin to pair with one another. You should have arrived at the screen for Transferring Data on the Android phone at this point. In this section, select WhatsApp, along with all of the other applications and data that you wish to transfer.
  • To begin the process of data migration, you must now tap the “Continue” button located on the Android device.
  • When the transfer is finished, you will be able to see a screen on your iPhone that says Transfer Complete. To complete the process and make your iPhone ready to use, you need to press the button labeled Continue Setting Up iPhone.
  • You will be prompted to download the iOS versions of the apps that were installed on your Android phone, including WhatsApp, once the setup is finally finished. This prompt will appear on your screen. You may also dismiss this message, go to the App Store, and download the most recent version of WhatsApp as well as any other app that you have installed on your iPhone.
  • After the messaging app has been successfully installed, sign in with the same phone number that was previously associated with it on the Android device.
  • Click the start button once the one-time password (OTP) system has successfully completed the login process. The app will begin unpacking all of the data that was transferred and will display it in the appropriate locations, including your WhatsApp chat history taken from the Android device. This process will begin automatically.
