As we know that Whatsapp is very popular in the mobile world and most of us use this app to chat with friends, relatives, family members. But what if we want to switch from Android phone to Iphone or vice versa? It becomes complicated when you want all your data (including chats, images and videos) and media (audio files) to be transferred from your old phone to your new smartphone. You either need to find someone who can do this for you or learn yourself how to transfer Whatsapp data from Android Iphone . It will take hours of effort, if not days, depending on the amount of data you are trying to transfer.
Whatsapp is an instant messaging app which includes a lot of features and can be synchronized between a number of smartphone platforms. It is free from ads and offers really good privacy settings, especially when it comes to knowing your privacy status. You will have the options to hide your “last seen” status, blue tick feature activated or not, change the privacy settings of who can see your profile and photos and more.
Whatsapp is a different messaging service than others since it allows you to transfer the app’s data from one phone to another simply by signing in with your username and password. While this may seem so easy, there are some things that need to be done before transferring Whatsapp data from Android Iphone .
How To Transfer Whatsapp Data From Android To Iphone
Step 1: First of all, you need to download and install “WhatsApp” on your new iPhone or Ipad. If you already have this app installed on the new phone, then go to step 2. Otherwise, download and install it from App Store .
Step 2: Now, there are two methods to transfer your Whatsapp data from Android Iphone .
2.1: The first method is much faster and easier than the second method. This is because you just have to log in using your phone number and password without doing anything further. To do this, go to Settings and tap on “Chats” option. You should see an “Import Chat History” tab here, where you can tick the first option . This will help you import all older conversation which were saved on your android phone to the new Iphone.
2.2: The second method is a bit complicated than the first one and thus not recommended for everyone.

Now click “Desktop” from the left sidebar menu and download the client for Windows or Mac OS X according to your PC.
