It was previously noted that the chat and data migrating feature on WhatsApp will require the Move to iOS app on Android. While it has rested in the beta phase for a while, you finally have the option available to transfer your entire chats from Android to iPhone or vice versa.

The company notes that your Android phone should be running Android Lollipop or newer versions and your iPhone should be running iOS 15.5 or later versions. You can check out the prerequisites below for more details.

  • Android OS Lollipop, SDK 21 or above, or Android 5 or above installed on your Android device
  • iOS 15.5 or above installed on your iPhone
  • Move to iOS app installed on your Android phone
  • WhatsApp iOS version or above on your new device
  • WhatsApp Android version or above on your old device
  • Use the same phone number as your old phone on your new device
  • Your iPhone must be factory new or reset to factory settings to pair with the Move to iOS app and move data from your Android phone
  • Both of your devices must be connected to a power source
  • Both of your devices need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network or you’ll need to connect your Android device to your iPhone’s hotspot

Take note that when you transfer WhatsApp chats from Android to iPhone, you will have to create an iCloud backup to use the cloud storage feature. Furthermore, the company has also kept the entire transfer process end-to-end. What this means is that even the company can not see the data and chats that you are transferring. Moreover, your Android phone will still have the data and chats unless you delete the WhatsApp app or factory reset your device.

We will be covering a dedicated tutorial on how to transfer chats between the two platforms, so be sure to stick around. This is all there is to it, folks. Are you looking to transfer your WhatsApp chats and data from Android to iPhone? Share your views with us in the comments.
